ok, I executed the following sequence:

for i in `seq 0 10`; do
  for F in ds glibc diet; do
    echo "$F/$i" ;
    { time /tmp/tcpsvd.$F 1024 ~/tmp/r & } &>/tmp/res.$F.$i ;
    ~/tmp/s 10000 50 1024;
    killall tcpsvd.$F;


* executes a static dietlibc linked 'tcpsvd.ds' (F=='ds'), a dynlinked
  dietlibc 'tcpsvd.diet' (F=='diet') and a glibc linked 'tcpsvd.glibc'

* tcpsvd listens on localhost, port 1024 and executes program ~/tmp/r

* ~/tmp/s makes 10000 requests as fast as possible but not more than 50
  at the same time

* all this will be done 11 times for each $F

* results will be stored into /tmp/res.{diet,ds,glibc}.$RUN

This gives the following numbers (values of static linked dietlibc are
assumed as 100%):

The 'real' times were omitted because they are having a very high
variance; see http://ensc.de/diet/ for the values

Comparing static sizes:

$ ls -l tcpsvd.{ds,diet,glibc}
-rwxr-xr-x  1 ensc ensc 38788 23. Feb 23:28 tcpsvd.diet         100%
-rwxr-xr-x  1 ensc ensc 33308 24. Feb 00:26 tcpsvd.ds            86%
-rwxr-xr-x  1 ensc ensc 47352 23. Feb 23:29 tcpsvd.glibc        122%

$ ps u
     VSZ   RSS                                                   VSZ%   RSS%

As you can see, the static dietlibc linked application outperforms both
the dynamic linked and especially the glibc linked version significantly.

Environment: FC4, P4 2.8GHz HT, 1GB RAM

The 'r' and 's' programs were built with 'diet -Os gcc ...' and are
