Without having looked at your code I would guess the following. By using the http part of libevent you do a lot of allocation and data copying into buffers as well as function callbacks. While ab does no such thing and write and read directly on the sockets. Also note that there are minimal differences from select and other event mechanisms for the small socket sets so there is not much to gain from using epoll or kqueue in this case. _______________________________________________ Libevent-users mailing list Libeventemail@example.com http://monkeymail.org/mailman/listinfo/libevent-users
