Tiny/turbo/throttling HTTP server with CGI support
thttpd is a simple, small, portable, fast, and secure HTTP server.
Simple It handles only the minimum necessary to implement HTTP/1.1.
Small It also has a very small run-time size, since it does not fork and is very careful about memory allocation.
Portable It compiles cleanly on SunOS 4.1.x, Solaris 2.x, BSD/OS 2.x, Linux 1.2.x, and OSF/1 on a 64-bit Alpha.
Fast In typical use it’s about as fast as the best full-featured servers Apache, NCSA, Netscape. Under extreme load it’s much faster.
Secure It goes to great lengths to protect the web server machine against attacks and breakins from other sites.
It also has one extremely useful feature URL-traffic-based throttling that no other server currently has.
