it that have to do DBI calls to serve each page are responsive enough
to deliver multiple
pages per second. I am curious to see which will be the choke point as more
throughput is needed: the MySQL server or the Singlethreaded. If it
turns out that
there are delays due to ST waiting for DBI results, ST can be made to fork after
binding the listening ports, but DBI connections must be done after
the forking, as
I understand it, at this time. Currently my ST installation is
handling my load perfectly
well as a single thread.
I haven't looked at ppcgid yet, I might lift some code out of it for
ST if it is licensed
in a way conducive to that.
