No, the CGIs are not in perl. They are either shell scripts or C
programs. Strangely, Apache 1.3 performs better than Apache 2.0.xx with
the worker MPM when the CGIs are C programs or shell scripts. We did the
benchmarking with the ab utility. Anyone has similar experiences ? And
any idea why that should be the case ?
