Um. Me. Iain Truskett. Can be found as either Spoon or Koschei around the place, and as Braxiatel in rare circumstances. Um. Cool. Ta.

My perl svn repository [] if you want bits of code by me. Also see [] for most of them in action.

My friends [], foes [], fans [], and freaks []. And you can see what my friends are journalling [].

And everybody's journals [] (in order of updating).

[ #5365 ]

Benchmarking is always fun.

Using ab on localhost, asking for 50_000 requests of the Tux served front page: 27.924 secs. 1790.57 requests per second.

Ditto but for the mod_perl real pages (yes, it's not really fair to compare them, but I'm going to): [twiddles thumbs, waiting for it]

Tell you what, I'll post tomorrow.

  • I got plain Apache serving up over 2,200 requests/sec about 2 or 3 years ago on a (then state of the art) dual CPU pentium III 500 with SCSI discs. I guess a lot depends on your machine and setup. Make sure you're using mod_mmap if you're doing static stuff on Apache - it makes a massive difference.
    • The machine doesn't have the world's best setup. Nowhere near it. Partly due to it being my experimental machine before it was unceremoniously put into production due to the production server dying (motherboard; managed to salvage the rest but it was good to see it go anyway). Still no new backup, hence Tux being tried on the production =) Don't try this at work, kids.

      Half the problem is that a lot of the content isn't static. Everything is done using Mason (well, almost everything). I'm not entirely sure
