High-Performance HTTP Servers

Yesterday I have read about Apache Traffic Server. My dear lazyweb, do you use something like that (or Nginx)? What is your main reason for using it? I wonder why use user-space solution, when IPVS works pretty well for load balancing.

I used to use Perlbal as reverse proxy server. Why I did not used some kernel module? User space is much better for maintenance. At least for me. I can create new instance of Perlbal in 5 minutes and it will not require maintenance ever. I could not say that for kernel modules as I'm upgrading kernel whenever update from distro come.
