Thanks Mel... Now i've been reading a little and found that cherokee
maybe a very good alternative also.... I also found that the
performance will variate according to the syscall the server uses... i
read about poll,etc.... how to know which syscalls does the servers
support and which one is better/fastest?

I will continue looking for this...

Thanks a lot,
