I'm still very noobish to Perl, so I have a question on your response.
the $_->join for threads->list, what does this do.
The problem we are having, is that are services have a delay in their response time, being that our farthest host is between 200-400 miles from our distribution. Is this command going to keep the threads alive until a response if found?
The reason for the multi threads is that the main thread, launches a method that is launching other threads to search for all of the servies on each host.
@sysThread = threads->new( \&findHostNodes, $host );
my $host = @_;
#print some stuff about the node
#now find the services on the host
foreach $service (@r21services)
@serviceThread = threads->new(\@shutdonwServices,
shut down the windows services we are looking for
From you response, in your opinion, what is the better method?
