PS: Maybe add web page for performance comparaison ?

No, no, you missed the point entirely. Thttpd isn't here because it's fast or such - in DFly it's used because it's small. Last time I checked the binary was about 65K (and you only need the binary executable to run it; no config files or anything; it's an excellent little server).

See http://www.acme.com/software/thttpd/ for details (in short: for dynamic pages it only has CGI support (no "php-modules", and running PHP as CGI is slow), it's VERY fast for serving static content, and can't utilize SMP (because it's single-threaded asynchrounous server[*])).

[*] Since DFlys' TCP stack is (somewhat?) threaded, would even such applications benefit from MP?
