Niagara, Webserver and Nevada

Well, Colm did it again:

As I previously blogged, regular Solaris 10 managed to push 15298.68 requests per second. Well straight out of the box, Nevada was pushing over 18,000 - which is a 20% improvement, not bad! The kernel bug which caused the event MPM to crash is now fixed, and using the event MPM gets us to … drum-roll … 20,417.33 requests per second.

Quite impressive, especially when you take into consideration, that the current reaches round about 5000 Requests with Itanium and Linux.
