I haven't hit the limit - but I only get a couple hundred page views a
day. It would be interesting to hear from someone who was up against
1. does fastcgi help?
2. any modules to enable/disable/tweak?
The performance and scalability forum has more good information:
There is also a handbook page on this: http://drupal.org/node/2601
It's worth noting that the CPU limit is now 60 minutes a day. If you
assume a 4 processor box and that everyone maxes out every day, that
limits a shared host to 96 users (if my understanding of that stats
involved is correct). 96 users/server seems like a pretty reasonable
number. Other hosts I've been on have been in the hundreds.
