Some areas still in research include 'pseudo dynamic' generation of
Flash content based on user interaction and query results. First tests
are very good as I already said. The test server is running linux+apache
with the mysql database on the same server all running on an old normal
pentium 150Mhz class cpu with 24Gb storage and 128Mb memory. Current
configuration allows serving something in excess of 10000 simultaneous
connections according to first load tests. Head to head comparison with
same functionality done in html shows a 20% increase in overall speed
from the user point of view and a 45% decrease in traffic as the Flash
solution requires less overall data to travel to the browser.
