Well, you are right for RoR but mongrel can handle more requests per
instance if you use a threadsafe framework like nitro, but this is

I have send this link because it explained very easy and in few word how
you can test your setting, there are many many many sites out there
which explain in epic length how you can/should test your setup but I
thought this would not help the OP, I have thought he understand my
