Two questions about running HTTPd under solaris:

1) is the patch needed for HTTPd 1.5 or is it already in the code?
2) will the system tuning guidelines described in
work well with NCSA HTTPd (there is a section describing how
application developers can maximize performance)? What about apache?

Any additional information from WWW administrators about maximizing
performance on Solaris servers would be much appreciated...
