I'm trying to configure Apache+PHP on a Linux Red Hat machine(Pentium III,
IP 126.96.36.199) in order to leave the machine I'm currently using (Pentium
To evaluate the difference in performance, I ran the same PHP script in both
machines. Much to my surprise, the machine with a better hardware was
It's been some 10 days I've been working to fix this. Perhaps you can help
At this moment, both servers are running the same version of Apache and PHP.
You can check this through the addresses:
The script I'm using to test the difference in performance can be reached
If you want to see the script source, use 188.8.131.52/enem_pontosnew.txt
and see the source.
In both of them you will see five measurements of time. My readings, from a
lynx browser at the USA are
If you look closely at the above figures, you'll notice that in the first
three readings of each series, the new server is consistently 6 times faster
than the old one (which of course is something very good). However, in the
last two readings, the new server is only two times faster than the old one.
During the assembling of the html code of the tables in the pages, the new
server reduces its performance in a significant way.
Now an even more unexpected result. From an IE browser in Brasil, I've been
getting approximately the same readings from etapa.net, but 184.108.40.206 is
slower than the same page accessed from the USA. See it:
My conclusion is that the speed with which the browser can exchange bytes
with the server at the 220.127.116.11 address is affecting the speed of the
How should I configure the server so that it is independent of the client?
(Unfortunately, the people that have configured my other server don't know
the answer for this question.)
