I need more speed output from my servers and I am very very confused. I have only dynamic contents on my server. With traffic like 6K per second.

Please guide me.

This question need a lot more clarification. Only dynamic? No images? When you say traffic do you mean 6,000 visitors a second? This doesn't sound like a normal web site, is this a special application? – The Digital Ninja Jul 15 '10 at 14:57
This is an auction portal ? – Zahir Jul 16 '10 at 7:10

My Suggestion would be..

Nginx Proxy/Balance to Dynamic content on Apache Nginx Serve all static content..

I have worked on a reverse auction site using this technique and say alot of throughput..

What language is your backend in???

The "Nginx HTTP Server" book advises eliminating Apache to improve performance. The dynamic content can be served through a FastCGI server, or if it's in Perl, a backend PSGI server like Starman.
