kHTTPd, a Kernel-Based Web Server

Linux kernel developers realized that a kernel-based web server was needed.
Conclusions

kHTTPd might be a viable solution for web sites with high traffic and mostly static web pages. Using kHTTPd is very easy, and tests with this setup have shown a dramatic increase in throughput compared to standard user space web servers. The code itself has proven very stable and safe. Once again, Linux is a technology leader. Right on!
