I did a lan only test of an apache install on a stock 4.8-stable
box recently. With no extra tuning being done to the network
stack or similar, I maxed out at about 60Mbit/sec originally,
but after recompiling the kernel with:
and recompiling apache with HARD_SERVER_LIMIT=2048, SO_ACCEPTFILTER
and BUFFERED_LOGS, I pushed that to 83Mbit/s and an average of 1310
requests per second (using our actual website data and replaying
a day's worth of logs in fast forward) (oh, and apache 1.3.27)
The machine in question is a dual cpu 2.4ghz SuperMicro 6013P-8
with 2 gigs of ram. I turned hyperthreading off earlier but when
I get around to doing real tuning in earnest I'll experiment with
it off and on.
Oh, and when you make /usr/ports/www/apache13, set the env
variable WITH_APACHE_PERF_TUNING and a higher hard server limit.
So my highly unscientific advice to you is to check out the
ACCEPT_FILTER options and recompile apache to take advantage of them.
