I honestly don't know what you are doing wrong...in my tests, with simple
"hello world" type script things, I was getting ~10 times the performance
of Apache on a 128Mb machine. What sort of "concurrent connections" are
you using ? Anything more than 300 is asking for trouble...though I've not
ever seen it dropping connections.
The words of the unwary are apt to cause needless pain and bloody violence.
