No, you want mod_fastcgi. Witness:
$ ab -n 20 http://spud/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/
Requests per second: 2.33
Transfer rate: 20.02 kb/s received
$ ab -n 20 http://spud/cgi-bin/viewcvs.fcgi/
Requests per second: 58.31
Transfer rate: 501.57 kb/s received
It took about 15 minutes and 15 lines of code to convert
viewcvs.cgi to viewcvs.fcgi. I have no idea why more people
don't know about FastCGI.
