"Mindcraft released the first results produced from its new Server-side Programming Interface Call Efficiency (SPICE) benchmark. This comparison shows that the Sun/Netscape Alliance iPlanet Web Server, Enterprise Edition 4.0 (formerly the Netscape Enterprise Server) outperformed C2Net's Stronghold 2.4.2 (a commercial version of the Apache Web server) delivering static and dynamic content from 20% to more than 200% faster."

"Two significant problems with other Web server benchmarks using dynamic content are that they hide the performance of the programming interface used to create the dynamic content and that they do not give you an idea of the upper bound of the dynamic performance you can expect. The SPICE benchmark solves these problems," claimed Bruce Weiner, Mindcraft's President."
