Surprising indeed.

WSGI in itself should not make a difference there. However, if the
WSGI server used is Twisted, then Twisted has a higher overhead per
request than ZServer. However, these results seem to indicate that
this overhead suddenly becomes the major factor, which clearly is

It's usually a good idea to test this with smaller numbers of
concurrent requests as well, to see how speed reacts to increasing

Those WSGI tests make no sense, I think they are somehow faulty.
