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
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:
It has some remarks at the end which may help for plone.
