it can help, but from my own biased experience, a
profiler provide the quickest resolution.

sites that handle loads of SSL/HTTPS traffic usually
use hardware accelerators. of loading all the https
traffic to one box works for small sites, but for
anything with decent amount of concurrent https
requests, the more reliable technique is hardware

a 2ghz CPU will max out with 20-30 concurrent https
requests. that means all other processes like db calls
will be starving for CPU time.  one of these days I'll
have to rerun the https benchmarks remmy and I ran
last year and write a new article.
