I stated very clearly in the abstract of my document that I think that
HTTP server performance is only one of the criteria in choosing a web
application infrastructure. I noted furthermore that there is indeed a
difference between frameworks, in that some do more sophisticated
processing than others. And I added that benchmarking as a whole needs
to be taken with a grain of salt. So the disclaimers were there.
That doesn't change the fact that you need a certain level of
performance to be able to serve public sites. And IMHO the test was
reasonably fair for all. The goal of the dynamic vs. static page was to
get an idea of the overhead for dynamic pages.
Some more session management on each request is not enough to explain
the differences, I think.
