+Summary: Poor ASP.NET page serving performance (1/6th IIS)
+Description of Problem:
+Mono's ASP.NET performance is very poor (1/6th of IIS/.NET on winXP).  
+Pages per second (pps) :
+Mono+Apache+FedoraCore2  : ~10 pps 
+WinXP + IIS 5.1          : ~64 pps
+The same machine was used for both tests (700mhz PIII machine, 640mb ram).
+OS 1: Fedora Core 2 test 2 w/ selinux disabled, Apache2 + mod_mono_server, 
+Mono 0.31 + XSP 0.9
+OS 2: WinXP SP1 + IIS 5.1 + .NET 1.1
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Install test directory files from xsp-0.9
+2. From a separate machine run Microsoft Application Center Test
+   (or your favorite web load tool).
+3. Set the app to test only index.aspx repeatedly.
+4. Crank up user concurrency until machine is saturated, read pps rate
+   when it stabalizes.
+Actual Results:
+~10 pages per second  (fails with exception if multiple (simulated) users 
+try to access index.aspx at same time - already filed a separate bug on 
+that one).
+Expected Results:
+~60 pages per second (perhaps better?)
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+I suspect the performance gap between mono and IIS may even be larger for 
+Windows Server 2003.
+I'm about to launch a web service and I'd love to use Mono, but until the 
+performance numbers (and reliability) go up a little I'm stuck on Windows.
