Lwan vs Apache Tomcat: What are the differences?
Lwan: Experimental, scalable, high performance HTTP server. In development for almost 3 years, Lwan was until now a personal research effort that focused mostly on building a solid infrastructure for a lightweight and speedy web server; Apache Tomcat: An open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. Apache Tomcat powers numerous large-scale, mission-critical web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations.
Lwan and Apache Tomcat belong to "Web Servers" category of the tech stack.
Lwan and Apache Tomcat are both open source tools. It seems that Lwan with 5.01K GitHub stars and 524 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Apache Tomcat with 3.51K GitHub stars and 2.4K GitHub forks.
I was in a situation where I have to configure 40 RHEL servers 20 each for Apache HTTP Server and Tomcat server. My task was to 1. configure LVM with required logical volumes, format and mount for HTTP and Tomcat servers accordingly. 2. Install apache and tomcat. 3. Generate and apply selfsigned certs to http server. 4. Modify default ports on Tomcat to different ports. 5. Create users on RHEL for application support team. 6. other administrative tasks like, start, stop and restart HTTP and Tomcat services.
I have utilized the power of ansible for all these tasks, which made it easy and manageable.
