In my previous post, I lamented the fact that my OS/400 based Web
applications performed poorly in comparison to their Windows counterparts.
On my 170-2290 I've been averaging 10 requests per second under a maximum
load stress test.  A comparable Windows application handles 16 requests per

I think those who have tested their OS/400 based Web applications will
realize that 10 RPS is excellent for a 73 CPW AS/400 that performs moderate
database I/O, and transactions, and returns a 3-10K HTML response.  The
problem is not that my applications perform poorly in comparison to other
OS/400 based Web applications.  It's the price vs. performance in comparison
to their Windows-Intel counterparts that's bothering me.

Any further insights are appreciated.
