in thread Perl solution for storage of large number of small files
Actually, thank you for the lengthy reply!
I already learned about sqlite's async mode, but was too lazy to recompile it and just switched the design to in-memory (sqlite was used only on the index part - I am not such a big fan of binary data in databases yet..)
Pooling updates/writes (as in your transactions hint) was planned to streamline sqlite, but I pulled the plug on this when I opted for the in-memory approach.
Thanks for all your help guys! Until I need to handle more than 25,000,000 files, plain fs will do (without re-inventing the wheel..)
