Do you mean "not" or "now"? If you are seeing seg faults, you need to
get out your debugger and see what is causing them. You'll never get
good performance out of a seg faulting server.

Concurrency of 50 is nothing. I don't know what you mean by "number of
requests of 5000". Is that per minute?

Worker (or perhaps event) are usually the best choice for high
performance applications. But there is no magic formula. Getting the
best performance involves a careful examination of the bottlenecks
(resource limitations) and tuning around them. In other words, what is
causing the slow performance? Are you out of memory? Is the processor
pegged? Is the network saturated?
