Subject Re: mmap() versus read() (fwd)

Not portably that I'm aware of... 

The linux problem wasn't a maxclients problem though.  It's a problem
where 80Mb + 35 Mb + lots of small Mb for other tasks > 128Mb.  The 80 is
the amount of data trying to be served, the 35 is the size of Arctic MUD
and it's always in ram and busy.  The end result is that i/o has to be
done and with mmap() linux 2.0.x is less efficient at the i/o.
