It seems like we are talking about different things. The thousands of open connections move beween *hundreds of thousands* of servers. You do not keep connections open—and anyway people often sets Apache's httpd timeout for reusing connections below a reasonable politeness threshold (e.g., 5s). We close connections immediately and move to a new server.

I am not sure. You said previously that you wanted to keep ten thousands of concurrently open connections for the sake of 'politeness'. To me that pretty much implies that the I/O reactor has to select through tens of thousand connections, most of which are not utilized. This certainly carries a significant cost in terms of performance. (Unless I am missing something).


PS: I'll be off-line shortly and will pick up this thread tomorrow eventing.
