Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Windows, AOLServer, and OACS

Petru, do you have any knowledge of how a FastCGI approach would perform relative to taking the mod_ approach on Apache 2.0?

I suppose that a "perfectly" implemented mod_nsd would be the top performer. However, I expect the overhead introduced by FastCGI to be quite small and well worth considering development and maintenance time.

I also seem to remember some benchmarks from Zeus, where the Zeus web server talking to PHP over FastCGI was faster than native Apache+PHP.
