"Preliminary tests show boa is almost twice as fast as Apache, and is
capable of handling 50 hits per second on a 90 MHz Pentium."

Heh.  My tests (graphs at showed
Boa to be slightly faster (ie 40 conn/s for Boa, 37 conn/s for Apache)
under static pages, and Apache slightly faster than Boa on dynamic
(ie, CGI) pages (almost negligible) though Apache killed Boa in CGI 
throughput (I have no idea why).

Oh, and Apache did much faster than NCSA HTTPd.  Oh well.  Guess that
file descriptor passing thing wasn't a good idea :)

          I'm too low on the totem pole to speak for Intel.
