Hello, All,
  I am doing Client/Server network progarmming  by using ACE. Between Client and Server, I tried two kinds of connections, one connection is TCP connection and another one is SSL connection. through testing, I found TCP connection is much faster than SSL connection. For example, when I send some data by TCP connection, it will take 17s. however when I send same data by SSL connection. it will take 79s. I know SSL connection should be slower than TCP connection. do you think it should be so slow? what I did is as following:
  if (SSLConnection) //ssl connection
        send_cnt = this->peer ().sendv_n (iov, 2);
  else //TCP connnection
        send_cnt = this->peer ().peer().sendv_n(iov, 2); 
  all code is same except for the above parts.
  thank you very much for your comments and suggestion in advance.
