If you want to factor FreeBSD out of the problem, try to do the exact same Plone stuff under a good and easy Linux distro, like Ubuntu, and you will know if the problem is in Plone. In this case you have a workaround using a multiplexer as someone else mentioned, assuming your machine has several cores and a lot of memory. I am not an expert, but i have heard that Java frameworks have much better scalability, partly because threads are handled in a more reasonable way, and also because the JIT is very good. By the way, you can try to run Plone under psyco http://psyco.sourceforge.net/ provided you have a lot of memory. I have seen good improvement for some python programs with psyco. I have found a speed comparison which may enlighten you here: http://www.alrond.com/en/2007/jan/25/performance-test-of-6-leading-frameworks/ It has some remarks at the end which may help for plone. -- Michel TALON _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
