Ooops, yes, you are right ! I always test the TCP stack through a
limited test of ApacheDS (and sometime I do the same with
Databases) ! ;-] eh eh eh

6% system. Which is kind of high...

Ok, ok. Do not push this test too far. It's not realistic. It's just a
kind of baby test (very very young ! It's just one cell, actually, and
it will divide soon to two cells, then 4, then ...)

Call it very premature ;)

Nevertheless, I like those results !
