I know it doesn't require any patches, but you can offload your image server pretty easily, very efficiently as follows:
<img src="<%= $Template(gserv) %>/graphics/soa-logo4.gif" height="33" width="246"> Where Template(gserv) is set for each page request, obviously this could be as simple or complex as needed. In this case I offload the graphics to another port and serve with publicfile. Don't know if this is faster or not, but it doesn't require running through a lot of application code just to serve up a public image. Maybe the pure tcl image server would work just as good? But you can't offload with an https service since the files should come from the same ip:port, or at least this used to be required. Example is for http://saleonall.com/cat/allcat.html and https://saleonall.com/cat/allcat.html One thing the AOLserver community can offer is examples like this of how to do something pretty commonly needed as a website grows in size. Last week I had example of using threadpools to serve image files (either old or new version would work in this case). If there was a way to configure the interps in these threads, you could create a series of micro-servers targeted to the content being delivered. tom jackson On Wednesday 08 August 2007 12:12, John Buckman wrote: > >> as far as what lighthttpd and mathopd are doing to get better speeds, > >> is that they both are not multithreaded, they are just a single async > >> loop, serving static files.
