Subject Re: Tomcat 6's nio protocol is slower than the regular HTTP/1.1 protocol
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2008 18:33:05 GMT
that's expected, maybe not 30% but it all depends on the test.

What the NIO allows you for, is to have more sockets than threads, and 
also being able to free up a worker thread when sending down static 
content to the client.
