You can use ISAPI available with Internet Information Server for NT from 
It provides extensibility to the server, avoiding need for CGI (which is 
For more details on ISAPI (Internet Server API), look at

If performance is an issue, binding C code directly into the server is a
major win over cgi.  Spyglass has a toolkit to do this for $75000.  Netscape
has a set of api's that come with any server.  Cern, of course, comes with
source code, although it's _highly_ inscrutable.  I dont know about the use
of visual basic, though.  If you can make a dll with it, it should be 
> From: "Gregory J. Woodhouse" <gjw@best.com> I'm looking for information on
the performance of CGI under Windows NT.  I am interested in hearing how
different web servers compare with one another, and how different scripting
languages compare. I am especially interested, though, in the use Visual
Basic 4.0 (other versions?) I recognize that different applications can

anyone can point me to general advice on performance tuning an NT server,
that will also be most welcome.
