Subject Apache HTTP Server development
Date Mon, 24 Aug 2009 03:58:33 GMT
Apache HTTP Server should be Event-driven by default, instead of using
Processes/Threads. Alot of other http web servers are outperforming
Apache because they use Events because this reduces cpu and memory usage.
Events will help Apache server handle lots of concurrent connections
because currently Apache cannot handle 10,000 concurrent connections on a
low end single core server without Apache crashing or running very slow.
I know Apache has a threaded mode but this still uses alot more memory
and CPU and supports less concurrent connections than other web
servers that use an event-driven architecture. If Apache used Events it
will fix this c10k problem for low end servers. Tim
