Hi,


Can anyone help me with SSI resources.  I seem to be able to write them correctly, however when I use them in my web pages the web server seems to take ages in returning them.   I have developed a simple resource that queries my database and writes some of the value into a html page.  The following is what happens ( I have attached the debug filter to the resource ):
 
1. Make a call to the .shtml page ( Time = 0 ) 
2. My browser shows its status as " Connect : Host my browser address:8001.  Waiting for reply ....." (Time =1sec ).  The following is generated by my server : 
 
GET /Auction/product1.shtml HTTP/1.0 
Connection: Keep-Alive 
Date: Wed, 04 Feb 1998 18:52:26 GMT 
Pragma: no-cache 
Accept: image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, image/png, */* 
Accept-Charset: iso-8859-1,*,utf-8 
Accept-Language: en 
Authorization: Basic eHl6Onh5eg== 
Host: ll87.dial.pipex.com:8001 
Referer: http://ll87.dial.pipex.com:8001/Auction/category_1.html 
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.04 [en] (Win95; I ;Nav) 
 
3.  There is a long delay of at least 30 sec.  Then the server produces (TIME=35sec):  
HTTP/1.1 200 OK 
Date: Wed, 04 Feb 1998 18:53:21 GMT 
Content-Length: 61071 
Content-Type: text/html 
Etag: "uca5c3:pkg5fu90" 
Accept-Ranges: bytes 
Server: 1.0beta1 
 
4.  Now my SSI resource starts working and generated some output on the standard output, that I indicated it should (TIME=36sec). 
 
5.  The browser loads the web page (TIME=37sec). 
 
 
Can anyone tell me if this should take this long, if so why? If not does anyone know how I can change it.   
 
Cheers  
Ian
