Subject Re: 10,000 Virtual Hosts in a Tomcat instance
Date Sat, 26 Aug 2006 10:41:03 GMT
Dear Mladen,

Are we referring to 10,000 Virtual servers or 10,000 Connections?
And the answer is yes to 10000 connections.

Yes I would use worker-mpm or better still an epoll based httpd  
daemon, like lighttpd or zeus.
