first, I'm very impressed by this webserver. Great work
My question is, I try to run PHP with Hiawatha. I configurated it like shown in the sample configuration file (FastCGI block).
On the PHP side, there's PHP-FPM waiting for requests. I set it to MinSpareServers 5 and MaxSpareServers 10.
If I launch PHP-FPM it creates the PHP Cluster with ~7 Servers.
After throwing some traffic at it, Hiawatha behaves different to, let's say, Cherokee-Webserver.
Cherokee: traffic => leads to automatic spawning of new PHP processes via PHP-FPM.
Hiawatha: traffic => the number of processes keeps the same.
Couldn't this become a problem? Because PHP-FPM should manage the processes like with Cherokee. (Well, because the name says PHP-FastCGI Process Manager, I assume it automaticly spawns processes and terminates them if needed).
Excuse my poor english, it isn't my native language.
Hiawatha version: 7.4
Operating System: Debian 5
