Subject: Performance Gain?

So by switching from CGI to FastCGI I was expecting to see a gain due to
process persistence. Instead I'm seeing not much of a difference. Is the
fork/exec of a CGI process really not that expensive enough to be sole
performance gain? Is the only way to better performance thru session
affinity?  How & where does FastCGI pay off?
