Thanks for the kind words.
I would suggest you look at your back-end servers and network. If the servers
and/or network are not quite as fast as they should be you may be running
into the threads limit (most distribution come by default with a 1K active
A second problem you may see is a limit of CPU power: especially if you run
HTTPS on a single-CPU machine you may not have enough processing power for
all you need to do.
Please remember that Pound is very sensitive to the threads implementation,
which in turn is very dependent on the underlying OS. Some more details (what
OS, what libraries) would be helpful. Also: how did you determine the 300
reqs/sec limit? Did Pound choke on something (if yes - please log messages).
If not - what exactly happened?[...]
