Comparison Of Lightweight Web Servers

Lightweight web servers are web servers which have been designed to run with very small resource overhead because of hardware, environment, or simply for the challenge of it.

Many of these servers have been created as a mental exercise to determine if a modern webserver could be written to run on limited resources such as those provided in a graphing calculator, a Commodore 64, or in 64 kB (64 KiB) total of memory. Others have been written as commercial or open source endeavors to create webservers with low overhead for embedded systems (network router configuration pages) or low memory requirements.

Famous quotes containing the words comparison of, web and/or comparison:

    When we reflect on our past sentiments and affections, our thought is a faithful mirror, and copies its objects truly; but the colours which it employs are faint and dull, in comparison of those in which our original perceptions were clothed.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    Our friendships hurry to short and poor conclusions, because we have made them a texture of wine and dreams, instead of the tough fibre of the human heart. The laws of friendship are austere and eternal, of one web with the laws of nature and of morals.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In comparison to the French Revolution, the American Revolution has come to seem a parochial and rather dull event. This, despite the fact that the American Revolution was successful—realizing the purposes of the revolutionaries and establishing a durable political regime—while the French Revolution was a resounding failure, devouring its own children and leading to an imperial despotism, followed by an eventual restoration of the monarchy.
    Irving Kristol (b. 1920)
