Subject Re: Some benchmarks
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2001 10:45:20 GMT
I need to choose for my company the "next generation" servlet-engine.
For now we are using JRUN. I am doing benchmark to choose the next one.
choices for me are : JRUN, RESIN... not Tomcat as it is considered not
and slow compare to the two others...

my tests are done with LoadRunner and scenario from the load testing of
some of our applications
which are actually in production.

In these tests JRUN and Resin perform equally. Tomcat is get out of
memory, is slow compared to the other and sometimes even crashed the

my plateform for these test is : SUN Netra t1 105 UltraSPARC-IIi 440MHz,
512Mb, Netscape Web Server, SUN JDK 1.2.2

for info : for most people in my company Tomcat, would be the choice if
it was of the same quality as the two other ! so if someone could help ! wrote:
