Well, conventional wisdom from those running Netscape Enterprise server
holds that 32 threads/process is good, but I've been told that 16 is
better. If you figure 900 concurrent connections, that's about 30-60
processes.  I don't have any idea why one would want to lower the number
of threads though, and 32 sounds pretty reasonable to me.  Does anyone
have any idea what good numbers for Apache would be, and why they might
differ from Netscape Server?
