I have test the pound with web application stress tool,
in the 500 for the "stress level (threads)", and 1 for the "stress multiplier (sockets per threads)"
I assume it 500 user.
I test it for a while, the pound manage to survive, but some lagging for the 1st open up the site..
Then I try to test with 1000 for the "stress level (threads)", and 1 for the "stress multiplier (sockets per threads)"
And the web show up this error messages, "503 Service Unavailable"
in the pound log, i found this error (repeatedly)
pound pound: error copy server cont: Connection reset by peer
pound pound: error flush headers to 192.168.100.1
: Connection reset by peer
pound pound: error copy server cont: Connection timed out
pound pound: backend 192.168.0.251:80
create: Too many open file
I had try to set the clients to 600, and set the ulimit
[root@pound root]# ulimit -a
core file size (blocks, -c) unlimited
data seg size (kbytes, -d) unlimited
file size (blocks, -f) unlimited
max locked memory (kbytes, -l) unlimited
max memory size (kbytes, -m) unlimited
open files (-n) 999999
pipe size (512 bytes, -p) 8
stack size (kbytes, -s) unlimited
cpu time (seconds, -t) unlimited
max user processes (-u) unlimited
virtual memory (kbytes, -v) unlimited
what should I do so I can achieve the best performance ?

Many thanks Kevin. These 73 requests/second are very much in line with
our tests and other reports we received.
Keep the reports going.
