ApacheCon US 2008 Session

Scaling Apache hands-on

When it comes to configuring webservers for performance, nothing beats getting your own hands dirty. In these sessions, we will use real live Unix installs hosted with technologies such as Amazon EC2 to get to grips with configuring and benchmarking Apache, and diagnosing and working around bottlenecks. Learn how to simulate load, how to trace a request and how to measure the effects of changes on the system.
