  - Add benchmarking "guidelines". I'm posting it for discussion/review. If people
    don't like it, I can remove it.

  Benchmarking Tomcat
  Tomcat benchmarks are more than welcome, and people who are interested are
  encouraged to post results.
  This guide is designed to be a FAQ on how to configure Tomcat for maximum
  - Please upgrade to the latest available version of the Tomcat branch you
    would like to benchmark. Small incremental performance improvements are often
    made in each release.
  - Use the most recent JDK available whenever possible. Usually, results are
    dependent on the JDK, so results obtained with different JDK should not be
    compared directly.
  - When benchmarking Jasper, set it in production mode. To do that, add a
    "development" init parameter (with value set to "false") in the Jasper
    section of $CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml. This increases maximum throughtput
    of JSPs by about 20%, as well as removing a synchronization point.
  - When benchmarking a web application which creates sessions on each request,
    be careful about not exhausting memory by having too many active sessions. If
    a max number of sessions is set in the manager to avoid memory problems, this
    will lead to requests failing when session creation is denied. To avoid that,
    either limit the total number of requests, or increase the JVM memory.
  - Do not enable access logging (unless that is required by the benchmark), 
    or any debug log.
  - Please post the benchmark web application used along with the results, so
    that people may attempt to reproduce the results.
  - Definition of a standard webapp workload may be desirable, and contibutors
    interested in doing that are welcome to discuss it on the Tomcat developer
    mailing list.
