- Apache is able to deliver roughly 700% more requests per second with Squid when serving 1KB and 100KB images.
- Server load is reduced using Squid because the server does not have to create a bunch of Apache processes to handle the requests.
- APC Cache took a system that could barely handle 10-20 requests per second to handling 50-60 requests per second. A 400% increase.
- APC allowed the load times to remain under 5 seconds even with 200 concurrent threads slamming on the server.
- These two caches are easy to setup and install and allow you to get a lot more performance out of them.
