Standalone vs inetd

What to use ?
Inetd or standlone server ?
Well I personally chose standalone, however if you have a server with low resources, and a service that you want to run from time to time, then you should go with inetd.

Inetd only spawns the process when it is needed, so the process does not consume resources when no one is using it. However, there is an overhead on each connection as inetd spawns a new process to handle it.

So if you have a heavy used service go with standalone.
