I think what he's trying to say is that reading from disk is different
than reading from sockets so doing tests with disk reading is
misrepresenting the problem and may indicate a bottle-neck that isn't
How does this work if you remove the file-reading? I mean just putting
the file on a small TCP/IP file server with some simulated latency and
bandwidth limitation, and then connecting to that in each thread?
