Pid and I did some benchmarks for a talk we gave at SpringOne this year.
Included in that are some basic tests serving up static files, NIO vs APR.
We didn't test Tomcat vs HTTPD though.

Results are on Github here.

You can also run the tests yourself.  All the config and everything that
should be needed to set them up is in the Github project.
