You don't say which version of Koha, nor what o/s you are using. Assuming 
Debian/Ubuntu, what does printenv give you? You should see something like 
(amongst other lines):

me at my_server:/$ printenv

I'm also a little surprised by your "-run-as-root" -- in slightly older 
versions of Koha, this was a "no-no", but may well have changed (mpm-itk?)

There is also something I noticed in further emails:

What were the 9590 processes in the <4 minutes? That log entry would 
certainly get my attention.
