Drupal set and configured in about two hours. ROCK !
To actually see the performance, I simulated a "slashdotting" effect
with a benchmark program called siege [www/seige].
Using a careful choice of 3 users and 5 concurrent hits (3*5=15), the
performance was dismissal, to say the least.
It took me about 9 seconds to generate each response. This is not
I took to experimenting. I ran top at the same time. I figured out that
xitami forks an instance of php for every hit. So effectively, nine
copies of php. B.A.D.
What I did not see was nine instances of mysqld.
So, now I want a program which _multiplexes_ requests, and not fork().
This includes CGI programs, because I have no static pages on my web.
Is mod_php close enough ?
Any Ideas ?
