    python cgi with fastcgi? asp with python?


    Hey guys,

    I've been working on an online catalogging project for a bit now, using Python 2.3 for cgi on an IIS server. I've become quite annoyed with cgi's slowness (new process at each hit!), and have implemented FastCGI for a speed up.

    Recent googling has brought to my attention the possibility of using Python for ASP. This seems to me an attractive option.

    However, I must ask:

    How does ASP compare to cgi with FastCGI implemented, speedwise, both using Python?

    I've also considered using CherryPy, but I don't suspect using _trying_ to get CherryPy to work on IIS will be pleasant in the least.

    Thanks for your time, fellas.

    -Calvin
