Subject [OT] Apache httpd prefork versus worker MPM

All,

I've been working with Apache httpd and Tomcat together with mod_jk for
about 10 years, and I've always been using the prefork MPM. I'm setting
up a new development server with Debian Lenny and apt-get prefers to
install the worker MPM. I can definitely install the prefork MPM if I
want, but I figured I'd take this opportunity to ask about the worker MPM.

Has anyone had any configuration problems when using the worker MPM? Any
performance problems? The worker MPM is advertised as "high-performance"
and I was wondering if it would be a PITA to use or anything like that.

If the worker MPM really is higher performance, I'd prefer to use that,
but only if there are no big gotchas that anyone can think of.

I'd appreciate some feedback from folks that have used both the prefork
and worker MPMs at one point, and might be able to comment on their
different experiences.

Thanks,
- -chris
