Pierre, thanks for introducing me to Siege in your benchmark posts from Feb.

For those who missed them he has some great stuff there:

Below are this morning's Siege runs here on a small NUC.  Each test is 
just delivering the default Apache page, but done in three ways: first 
Apache alone, then LC Server running under Apache as a CGI, then with 
just a LiveCode standalone handling HTTP directly:


Apache 2.4.12
-------------
 > siege http://<domain>/index.html -b -c200 -r10 -q
Transactions:		        2000 hits
Availability:		      100.00 %
Elapsed time:		       29.38 secs
Data transferred:	        6.07 MB
Response time:		        2.49 secs
Transaction rate:	       68.07 trans/sec
Throughput:		        0.21 MB/sec
Concurrency:		      169.45
Successful transactions:        2000
Failed transactions:	           0
Longest transaction:	       20.78
Shortest transaction:	        0.22

Apache + CGI, LC Server 8.0dp16
-------------------------------
 > siege http://<domain>/tindex.lc -b -c200 -r10 -q
Transactions:		        2000 hits
Availability:		      100.00 %
Elapsed time:		       53.79 secs
Data transferred:	        6.07 MB
Response time:		        5.22 secs
Transaction rate:	       37.18 trans/sec
Throughput:		        0.11 MB/sec
Concurrency:		      194.18
Successful transactions:        2000
Failed transactions:	           0
Longest transaction:	       10.42
Shortest transaction:	        0.23

lcHTTPd standalone, made with LC 8.0dp16
----------------------------------------
 > siege http://<domain>:8080/index.html -b -c200 -r10 -q
Transactions:		        2000 hits
Availability:		      100.00 %
Elapsed time:		       12.55 secs
Data transferred:	        6.07 MB
Response time:		        1.07 secs
Transaction rate:	      159.36 trans/sec
Throughput:		        0.48 MB/sec
Concurrency:		      170.67
Successful transactions:        2000
Failed transactions:	           0
Longest transaction:	        3.29
Shortest transaction:	        0.07


Not shown in Siege but observable in Htop is the impact on CPU: both 
Apache by itself and the lcHTTPd standalone run the test without ever 
going much above 25% load, but Apache + LC Server spikes all four cores 
of the N3150 in my NUC for almost the full duration of the test.
