Ja.  Many spiffy numbers have mentioned, assuming they're testing
similar workloads on similar datasets in similar environments.  :-)  I
have no reason to doubt the data mentioned in this thread.

But if there were a Doubting Thomas lurking somewhere on the list...

... perhaps that person would be interested in comparing yaws against
Apache or, much better, squid in reverse proxy mode.  In low-overhead-
Web-server-land, perhaps a comparison against thttpd (I lose track of
all those supposedly small & fast & simple HTTP servers, but they're
easy enough to find) or Zeus.  Heh.  It's been years since I've used
Zeus, but back then I was amazed that it wasn't running in kernel
space....
