in thread Perl Program to efficiently process 500000 small files in a Directory (AIX)
Actually it did exactly give this performance gain. I changed the reading mechanism after benchmarking the programm. The benchmarks showed me that more than 90% of the real runtime of my programm was spent on I/O. The files were however larger (a few thousand xml files), and were located on a normal HDD not an SSD. He could simply try and see, whether it changes anything for him.
