Here's an observation: When we stress test with the test agents local to the server the IHS (Apache) server supports x users with y throughput. When we use test agents 15 miles across the valley we support fewer users with lower throughput with higher server usage. When we use test agents in an off-shore location with a smaller network pipe, we support far fewer users and lower throughput.

Does this make sense? My only guess is: on a slower network the client holds the IP connection open longer and eats up more resources on the server.

Sorry I don't have all the figures on how the server gets loaded up ... idle threads and active servers and all that. Can dig em up if it would help.

Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
