epoll and performance
Tue, 23 Mar 2004 16:31:42 +0100
in the past i have seen several posts here that recommend an upgrade to epoll
as a cure all performace issues.
Looking at the statistic on the dev epoll homepage after having a similar
discussion with a friend I am now not so sure anymore whether epoll will be
worth the hazzle for my setup.
I have 2 clients which implement Cache::Memcached as a fastcgi in apache.
Those can be queried to talk to the memcache-servers running on the same
Since my (2) fastcgi clients use persistent tcp connections to talk to
memchached I wonder whether the whole epoll stuff is really make a difference
The way I understood epoll, is it only boosts your performance if you have
lots of connections that are established (and broken down again).
Maybe I understood epoll wrong?
Please let me know if this is the case.
Thx & best regards,
