Subject Re: ZDNet also Made a story. / Tuning guideliness ?
Date Fri, 16 Apr 1999 05:03:11 GMT
Would anyone be interested in collaborating on putting together a
Linux-specific performance tuning guide?  I noticed that for some reason
the Apache website mentions that Linux has no problem handling heavy load
with default configurations...
