comment SuperMicro Superblade fails to boot from hard drive
@ewwhite: unlikely you know anyone in my country ;) - thanks for the help, turned out it's not the KVM. I am going to post a description of the required steps later. Need to catch some sleep soon.

Nope, unfortunately not so far. But I am still trying. Also one of the MegaRAIDs just came up with a fancy foreign configuration warning/error. Oh the joy.

comment nginx not listening to port 80
Are you running it as superuser? Also, is something else already listening to that port (lsof -i :80)? If you're not superuser, this will fail, unless the binary has been granted CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE see this. Last but not least, if you're testing from the outside world, check your firewall settings.

Well, but even if those 100 users use the app instead of a browser you probably don't want Tomcat (and a backend DB) to do the work all over again? nginx and varnish and cherokee to my knowledge have all solved the 10k problem. But that's just concurrent connections. Why would you want all content generated anew? All big Internet firms use an elaborate network of caching and sharding (DB) to cater all their visitors.

comment Handle many requests Web Services
Will groups of users get to see identical results? If so, have you considered varnish etc? Say you have a service that has a backend and frontend and only the backend requires login, only backend users would have to be served from Tomcat, the frontend users could get to see a cached page and the cache could age according to your (and the service's) needs. Also, the question is a bit open-ended as it stands. It might lead to a discussion rather than Q&A-style answers.
