Subject Re: Tomcat 6's nio protocol is slower than the regular HTTP/1.1protocol
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2008 09:22:38 GMT
Did anyone do the comparison between ajp13 and http for the protocol ?

I'd like to understand what the test cases were that were used for the
test. 
ie if the application takes a second to make the resulting html
if it takes 2 seconds to make the html how does that affect the
performance ?
