We just finished our app and I tested for performance with httperf. Our
setup is browser -> apache2.2-> mod_poxy balancer-> mongrel cluster -> 3
I have noticed that the total request per second is is about 7.5. When I
increase the no of mongrel to 5, it inches up to 8 req/s.
My question is how bad or good this number is? We are on a old dell 2400
machine with MySQL also runing ony the box. What can I do to increase
the req/sec number higher?
