[Seaside] Call for help: Seaside performances

Hi everyone,

I have to study performances of Seaside compared to other solutions 
(namely Java, PHP). The target would be a large application with many 
services and very high number of users (possibly several 100,000). The 
web servers would be deployed in a web farm with load balancing, etc. 
The goal is to have high availability and very good response time.

I'm interested in any return of experience, and pointers to performance 
tests and architecture definitions (even sparse). I'll try to avoid the 
troll of wether seaside is better than java or PHP (that's not the 
debate: seaside rules but I have to prove it ;-) ).

As some of you already know, I've made a first application using 
Squeak/Seaside, but the performances are quite deceiving (a 1/12 in 
favor of PHP, 1/6 for Java). Perhaps Squeak is not the best choice for 
the VM ?

Avi, I heard you use Seaside to server dabbledb.com. Could you provide 
some hints on the architecture for achieving good performances ?

All information greatly welcomed. Thanks for your help,
