Mongrel cluster and threads

Hi guys,
I'm running 6 instances of mongrel in a production environment and I
have this preformance problem. I'm calling a web service that
sometimes take up to 11 seconds to give me a response. In the meantime
mongrel can't serve another request...create a new thread for each
call to the web server could be a good solution in your opinion?
The bottleneck seems to be the average queue time on mongrel....

Thanks!
Roberto

Maybe you could call the webservice as a background process so you don't
have to care about how long does it take to run:
