After playing with Morbus' database I started to play with the one Charlie
sent us. His db has over 3000 nodes, while Morbus has about 400.

I've upgraded a copy to CVS.

I then requested the front page with 100 times using apache bench -n 10 -c
5 (10 times five users). No caching was used.

On the benchmarked machine I collected all sorts of data. 165 data columns
in total... You can get the raw data files, if you want. I will also
produce graphs from selected columns on request.

The good news is that Drupal CVS did have a slightly lower maximal load.

I did not look at the other data columns yet.

On none of the runs were any real failures, but oddly the page size
differed occassionally by a few bytes for both versions.
