[ka-Map-users] Tuning Apache and PHP on Windows 2000?

I've been watching things in Performance Monitor, and we're not paging,
and we're not coming close to the limits of available CPU, memory, or
Which is why I was wondering if we might be bouncing up against
configurable limits in Apache or PHP.
The delay seems to be in generating tiles. If I clear the browser's
buffer, the tiles show up quite snappily.
