64 bit linux and 64 bit apache


Can someone help me understand the benefits of running 64 bit linux and 64 bit apache? Can it handle more than 256 simultaneous requests?

One of the biggest differences is that pointers are 64-bit rather than 32-bit - if that affects performance significantly, then you may see a change (I really doubt it). The number of simultaneous requests served is driven by other issues, not by choice of 32/64 bit CPU code.
