SubjectRe: high load & poor interactivity on fast thread creation
I don't have really good numbers for either, but I can say that I was
really impressed with this firewall yesterday. there were other problems
in the system that caused things to clog up, but a 2.4 AMD950 PC133 ram
system was useable (slow, but useable) with 4000+ processes and a loadave
of > 300
