Caucho Resin: faster than nginx?

FYI:
http://www.caucho.com/resin-application-server/press/resin-java-web-server-outperforms-nginx/

" Using industry standard tool and methodology, Resin Pro web server was
put to the test versus Nginx, a popular web server with a reputation for
efficiency and performance. Nginx is known to be faster and more
reliable
under load than the popular Apache HTTPD. Benchmark tests between Resin
and
Nginx yielded competitive figures, with Resin leading with fewer errors
and
faster response times. In numerous and varying tests, Resin handled 20%
to
25% more load while still outperforming Nginx. In particular, Resin was
able to sustain fast response times under extremely heavy load while
Nginx
performance degraded. "

What nginx configuration was used during the testing? Did they tune it?
Did Resin use an equivalent level of logging? What build options were
used
to build nginx? Why did they test on 1k page? I don’t think that the
average
size of typical web-page and its elements are about 1 Kb. Does it mean
that
the Resin cannot effectively handle files of more size? What about
memory
usage? And after all, why did they use the latest version of Resin and
relatively old version of nginx?

Hey,

Why did they test on 1k page?

Because in Resin “Small static files are cached in memory, improving
performance by avoiding the filesystem entirely. Small files like
1-pixel
images can be served with little delay.” (source:
http://wiki4.caucho.com/Web_Server:_Static_Files).

Biased benchmark (Resin serving from memory vs nginx opening, reading,
serving and closing files).

Best regards,
Piotr S. < [email protected] >

which version of resin did they use, the open source or pro version?

We are making a nginx benchmark under 10Gbe network. For an empty page,
we
get about 700k rps of nginx, in compare with about 100k rps of resin
pro.

In caucho’s test, they use i7 4 core / 8 HT, 2.8 GHZ, 8Meg Cache, 8 GB
RAM,
and I use duo intel e5645. I think the result can be improved through
some
tuning.

We tuned server configuration and nginx configuration, but didn’t tune
much
on resin. We didn’t find any configuration of caucho’s testing, neither
nginx nor resin. so i wonder how to make the rps of resin go above 100k?

Resin Pro 4.0.29, so whats the point? We are talking about open source
software here, no?

I use Xeon E5 32core CPU with 10G NIC, for empty page,get nearly
400-500k
rps on nginx 1.2.4,
How to get 700k rps or more(1000k rps)?
