I rather like the SCGI protocol. It's a pity that it isn't as widely
supported as FastCGI, considering that it's much simpler to implement
(second only to plain old CGI), but still has a performance profile
similar to FastCGI's.
I mostly implemented FastCGI in Racket at one point, but then I read
about the FastCGI implementation in my target HTTP server having hard
bugs, so I abandoned that.
I also think there are faster ways to serve HTTP from Racket, but I'd
have to find funding to work through them.
And we have to keep in mind that, unlike benchmarks for LINPACK or
standard transaction processing, the real-world applications of HTTP
servers are messier. And also, I don't think many people have been
tuning for Web application benchmarks, unlike was once done for LINPACK
and TP. I think the Racket community has enough skill to make a
respectable showing in a benchmark tuning war, or in general platform
performance for real-world Web applications, but I'm not aware of any
funding going into that right now.
