In 2001 I tested it for our anticipated load.  It worked for me, but
it was not up to the kind of load that we were anticipating.  It was
reasonable, however, and I was not able to break it; it just wasn't
up to the load I had to plan for.  We also needed multi-salve
replication.  We therefore did some work with PostgreSQL, Inc. to
produce a new, somewhat better version of rserv.  That's what we
still use in our production systems.

So I have not had problems getting rserv to work, but it wasn't
enough for us.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others,
though: the strategy is sound, and if it meets your needs, it'll
probably do fine (assuming it still works with 7.3; when I was
testing, remember, 7.1.x was the released version).  I seem to recall
keeping it busy with several hundred transactions per minute, but
whether that was sustainable I don't know.
