kiat has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all,

I would like to hear from anyone who has the experience of managing a fairly busy site with Perl cgi without the use of mod_perl, fastcgi and such.

By 'fairly busy', I'm thinking about something in the region of 30000-50000 hits a day.

In particular, I would like to know about the sort of problems that are encountered during peak hours. Something like 100 users simultaneouly on the site, whether actively doing something (like posting a message) or just surfing, would constitute peak hours to me.

Cheers and as usual, thanks for reading and sharing :)
