While using "Apache 2.0.45" as web server with jboss application server, during load testing of java application from multiple clients, performance of application reduces i.e. while using Apahce with jboss during load testing, TPS and response time is less. But, while performing load testing of application without using Apache (i.e. directly sending request to jboss), TPS ans response time are comparetely high than previous scenario.
OS is "Win Advance Server 2003" and DB is "Oracle9".
Please let me know which settings on apache can give me better results for load testing.
