Subject Re: Bandwidth Limit on Windows
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2005 18:05:47 GMT
Probably has to do with sendfile, always turn it off on windows.  I was 
seeing low throughput as well until I turned off sendfile, then over a 
100 MBps network I got over 11,000 KB/s.

Apparently apache has a rather horrible emulation of sendfile on windows 
for some reason or another.
