It would be much more interesting to see benchmarks that evaluate 
response latency or maximum number of concurrent connections. Or a 
combination of both. That's where Erlang will really shine.

Requests/s is boring (and absolutely doesn't mean one server is faster 
than another!), especially with keep-alive. As I mentioned in my talk in 
SF, requests/s benchmarks weren't able to show any performance increase 
in recent Cowboy versions, despite production nodes being able to handle 
2 times more traffic than older versions.
