I think the problem might be that you are using gnet_conn_readline().

I would use gnet_conn_readany() with a buffer (not too small!). 

The drawback is that you have to assemble the pieces you get yourself and 
check for the end-of-line character yourself, but it should be a lot faster. 
I've done it this way in some apps of mine, and I haven't noticed any 
performance problems yet.

Disclaimer: I'm not a gnet hacker, I might be totally wrong ;-)

Hope this helps.
