Re: mod_perl and mod_asp
One reason to avoid mod_perl is memory consumption. CGI scripts take up
memory only when they are running. --You can have hundreds of CGI scripts
on your server. When we moved to mod_perl our apache processes moved from
taking about 3M each to about 8M each. With a 100 processes this might be
an issue for you.
On the other hand if you are running a cgi script more than twice a
second, mod_perl is a big win.
To answer your question, putting SSL & mode_perl on the same server
works fine for us. You might think of separate servers for CGI and
