I'm using lighttpd 1.4.28 with CentOS 5.4

my load average is constantly high at 0.44 0.36 0.26 on my newly setup VPS.  CPU constantly reach 100%.

I'm using the default configuration and serving static content, ranging from 80k~300k.  I was told lighttpd did a much better job is serving static content comparing to apach.

my old system with much more workload with CentOS 5.4 but running apache is constantly at 0.05 0.05 0.04 range, even with half of memory.
