Chapter 20. Server Performance > Use the Most Recent Version of Your Server

20.2. Use the Most Recent Version of Your Server

Web server performance has improved dramatically in the short time since the creation of HTTP. The latest generation of servers are more than 10 times faster than the earliest servers. And they're still getting better.

20.2.1. inetd Spawned Servers

The first generation of web servers were just another Unix service launched on demand from inetd, the Internet daemon. inetd reads /etc/services and /etc/inet/inetd.conf when it starts at boot-time and listens to the ports specified. When a request comes in on one of inetd's ports, it launches the program specified in /etc/inet/inetd.conf to deal with requests on that port.
