Thats not very descriptive. It describes what probably 90% of the users
of mod_mono/xsp do.

We've had a small low traffic web service running on xsp in Debian Linux
for probably a year now. It communicates with Windows and Linux clients
using SOAP and pulls data from a MySQL database. At first it required a
restart now & then, but I haven't had any problems with it in some time.
There have been reports of users frustrated when running mod_mono/xsp in
high traffic/high availability environments, but the Mono team always
seems eager to help debug.
This discussion is probably better suited for the plain mono list.
