This chapter provided a first approach of the configuration architecture by studying the syntax and the core module directives that have an impact on the overall server performance. We then went through a series of adjustments in order to fit your own profile, followed by performance tests that have probably led you to fine-tune some more.
This is just the beginning though. Practically everything that we will be doing from now on is to establish configuration sections. The next chapter will detail more advanced directives by further exploring the module system and the exciting possibilities that are offered to you.
