I ran it with 100 simultaneous users--and the longest processing times were still
less than 1.6 seconds (my magic "it takes too long on the server" time).

I wasn't satisfied, so I went with 200 simultaneous users.  My longest processing
time was 3.135 seconds with one Resin Server through Apache, on a 750 MHz Athlon
and 256 MB RAM.

I can't break it with my hardware--can someone with an SMP machine (Symetric Multi-
Processing) try to break it?

Avalon + Cocoon ROCKS!

(sorry, I got a little enthusiastic there).
