MDMA - Multithreaded Daemon for Multimedia Access
Simon Spero (email@example.com)
What is MDMA
MDMA is a new HTTP server for Solaris. It has been designed for use
on very busy servers such as UNC's sunsite, which handle over 100,000 requests
Up to ten times faster than other servers.
All requests are handled by a single process, with much
less overhead than if a new process were to be started for
- Dynamically Extensible
MDMA uses BGI - a set of
programming conventions that allow the server administrator to
dynamically load new functions. These functions allow customised
enhancements to operate as quickly and efficiently as standard file
- System Monitoring
MDMA also allows the administrator to customise the functions used to
log requests; these functions can be used to generate continuously
updated counts of request rates and response times.
MDMA is available as both source code and as a ready-to-run Solaris package.
[NC-17] THIS IS A SNEAK-PREVIEW PRE-ALPHA (i.e. badly broken) RELEASE
It's not house-trained. It probably won't work. Don't try and use this
release for anything useful. We have made every effort to ensure that
all bits in this package are either 0 or 1. However, these bits may not
be in the correct order and proportion.
Anyone found laughing at the code will be shot at dawn.
