Yes, it's just a dummy sample.

This dummy sample can serve about 1k req/s on one cpu core. I want to find 
standard ways to make it serve 1k*ncpu req/s.

I see only one way: run master which listen network and balance requests between 
several forked twisted processes. I'm not very familiar with twisted so I want 
to see somebody's opinion and may be examples.

Thanks, I'll take a look.
