There are _many_ http daemons faster than Apache HTTPd is.  

Apache HTTPd attempts to have a stable and rich plugin interface and
configuration language.   Last I heard, their performance objective was
merely to ensure that they can saturate a T-1 line using commodity

nginx, Boa, thttpd, Lighttpd, Caudium WebServer, medusa, DNHTTPD, webfs,
bozohttpd, MHTTPD, xs-httpd, Hydra, Nanoweb, Bauk, Monkey HTTP Daemon,
Yaws, and Mathopd are all faster.  TUX and kHTTPd are _way_ faster.
All have drawbacks.
