Just a short note to say an big THANK YOU for you work on SpeedyCGI. I'm currently in the process of writing and implementing a web application for a major telco using Perl and LDAP and performance was becoming an issue, but after installing SpeedyCGI, my scripts are running at least 15 times faster!

Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Best regards,
James McGregor

As an open source web solutions provider, eXtropia (http://www.eXtropia.com/) has spent the last 7 years refining it's Perl application suite to help developers around the world benefit from it's open source applications. One downside for many environments is that a pure CGI solution is "slow".

Since last year, CGI::Speedy has been a welcome addition to eXtropia's toolbox of solutions that allow it's users and clients to accelerate our Perl-based applications. Previous to CGI::Speedy, we have recommended Apache and mod_perl to our clients. However, not all our clients have an Apache-enabled environment. For users of Netscape and other web servers which do not have mod_perl available, we have recommended CGI::Speedy.

In the case of one client using Netscape, we experienced 2-3 second delay on the application because their server was already heavily loaded with many other CGI scripts and applications. However, CGI::Speedy brought the response time up to less than a second even with the rest of the server being heavily loaded. Needless to say this made our client extremely happy to have such a quick win without having to spend money on extra hardware for their web apps.

Thank you for the great program. My server was getting killed by user requests. The server was consistently running with a load average of between 6 and 12. After installing speedy the load is now between .5 and 1.5 . You have saved me A LOT of money. I was about to invest in a dual-xeon processor. Thanks!
