I have found the Grizzly benchmarks that have been published to be
bogus (or at least to be valid for very specific workloads, and having
bad behavior for many others).

If you want high scalability without compromising raw performance, I
recommend you use the APR connectors (AJP or HTTP) that are included
in Tomcat 5.5.14 (actually in 5.5.12+, but bugs have been fixed).
