This is just a test project to demonstrate to some fellow team members how Jetty seems to spin out of control when overloaded with requests.

1. clone project from github
2. sbt update
3. sbt "run server jetty-test.conf"

Once it is running,

1. Point browser to localhost:8081
2. Hold down reload for a few seconds so that it sends a lot of requests
3. Observe that the CPU continues to be pegged for quite some time
