FYI I built simple count and greeter versions in Nim and they used around 350k. Some napkin math theorizes that's over 10k concurrents on an 4GB VPS for say a simple chat service backed by redis. I'm not sure how well websocketd will hold up at that point though...

Per process could mean easier scaling too. Like round robin connections balanced between multiple app servers backed by a beefy shared redis for example. I've never really understood how best to scale websocket services, but this could make it easier.

Thanks for that experiment!
