How robust is SocketServer.py?

Does anybody have an example of an application based on 
SocketServer that has run for an extended period of time 
under load?  

I suppose robustness is dependent on how robust the code
is, and what else the socket server doing is doing, for 
example handling DB queries, but what are the limiting 
factors and is there a standard stress-testing or 
benchmarking package?

Should I daemonize the process instead of just starting
it in the background with "$ python simpleserver.py &" ?
