By design, php-fpm starts all pm.max_children at the same time, and therefore, will also re-start all children roughly at the same time when they reach  pm.max_requests. This causes the load on the Server, as well as latencies to increase until all children are re-started, their caches warmed up etc.

It would be preferable to randomize the number of requests until a child is reaped, instead of always using exactly pm.max_requests. For example, a random value within  pm.max_requests plus or minus 10% could be chosen for each child.
