Yes, the easiest way to find out what mode Spyce is running under is to
run the info.spy file. At the very end, under the version section, there
is some mode info. If I run it from the command line, I see: cmd. Under
mod_python, it should say: modpy. Some of the other options are: cgi
(regular CGI), fcgi (FastCGI), and www (internal webserver).
This information is also included in the HTTP headers that are sent back.
Spyce automatically adds the 'X-Spyce' header with this information. The
current format is:
X-Spyce: Spyce/<spyce-mode>_<spyce-version> Python/<python-version>
Your httpd.conf below seems to have two handlers for the .spy extension:
AddHandler spyce-cgi-handler spy
AddHandler python-program .spy
It's likely that the first line is triggered first, and CGI is used to
respond to your request. Try commenting this out, and hopefully you will
see a dramatic improvement in performance.
All the best,
