Is there any alternate server architectures i should start thinking of ? This server works on basis of threaded architecture and am seeing some complaints about threading in python. Should i be considering anything else ?

      It depends on the implementation aspects. I am not very sure
about threads, but for these scenarios, we should ideally be using
reactor/proactor patterns. IIRC, all twisted[1] implementations are
reactors. So, you can switch to twisted. Still proactors are even
better. If you could implement one with Proactors, that should be even
more efficient and scalable. Thanks
