I started digging into the LightTPD configuration. At my current knowledge
level of LightTPD I can only confirm the results from the article [1]
Michael Scharkow wrote for the T3N magazine regarding the performance of
TYPO3. While LightTPD seems to be very fast delivering static pages and
simple PHP based pages it is slower than Apache 2 with mod_php delivering
TYPO3 pages.

Can you confirm this?

If not, it must have to do with the configuration I am using at the moment.

Can you provide a sample configuration which proofs that LightTPD is also
delivering TYPO3 pages faster than e. g Apache 2?

Maybe you can put your sample configuration on the wiki [2].
