[REBOL] Re: Rugby: Number of Connections

From: mattsmac:hot:mail at: 17-Nov-2003 11:17

Actually, I am using it for ODBC (SQL-Server Access) among other things. Why is this a bad idea and what are my alternatives while still using Rugby? ------------------------------- Under extreme load, yes. But I have seen Rugby handle 300 req/sec with a simple string echo between two 1 Ghz PCs. Realize that your application code is blocking, so if that does only simple (=fast) REBOL logic, you won't have problems. But if you use it as a gateway to e.g. an ODBC database it may be a different story depending on the speed of your database (but why would you tunnel ODBC via Rugby?). Of course you might use another metric like timing the execution time of each request, logging that to a dispatch server that balances based on that. So, generally speaking, if you application logic isn't the bottleneck, Rugby won't be it either ;-) --Maarten
