Re: concurrency problem

Dude!  Using 2.0.27 in production is pure madness.  Upgrade.  This is
like running Samba 1.9 or a 2.0 kernel and complaining that performance
is bad.

You are never going to get 500 concurrent threads,  setting it that high
won't accomplish anything.

These values are not realistic.  Just making them higher will not help

Performance with ldbm is terrible,  upgrade and user BDB or HDB

Seriously, 2.0.x is very very very old.  Performance of late versions of
2.2.x is ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE higher.  When we upgraded we didn't even
need the benchmark to tell it was heckuva-lot-faster

And your sure that DNS performance and related factors are good and
