[Mono-dev] How scaleable is Mono?

I'm wondering the same thing. I just run a small low traffic blog, but
when I got published on a major website, my web server's load barely

For reference, it went from 150 people/day to 1000+ people/day for a
while, but the only indication in stats was a 2% rise in CPU usage for
the major period of increased traffic.

Of course, I also don't use Vanilla ASP.Net either. (
https://bitbucket.org/earlz/barelymvc ). Either way, I suspect for a
well written web application, you shouldn't have any problems scaling
with Mono that you wouldn't have with .Net (of course watching out for
the differences with IIS and apache/mod_mono though)
