This component accepts the request from a unix domain socket and delivers them to a thread picked up from appropriate thread pool.

The thread pools are pre-initialized with application objects. Hence do not carry any initialization penalty for request handlers.

Further server has mechanism for collection of statistics and profiling information. It should also be possible to suspend request handling on external input so that maintenance tasks can be done without taking the server down. This will add to availability of the server.
