Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to AOLServer support HTTP 1.1 Pipelining

Consider putting a squid cache in front of it. My tests showed that my boxes were capable of returning about 15 pages per second directly or over 500 pages per second with the squid cache.

You'll need to hack your pages to return a last-modified header for pages that you want squid to cache. For a news page this could be the posting time of the latest story or something. For the rest of the pages squid will just fetch and return normally and should not affect the site's operation.
