With Perl threads, the thing that is usually the slowest is creating a thread. This is because creating a Perl thread requires cloning every data structure you have created. So I would first determine if that is where the time is being spent. You can report that by comparing the time at the start of the routine running against the time just before you ask for a thread to be created.

If that is indeed where most of the time is spent, then you should do what just about anybody who has gotten good at using Perl threads does: Create your threads very early and just ship work to them, usually via a thread queue such as Thread::Queue.

Though, looking at your code, I don't see where you would have a large data structure that should not have been destroyed before you create the thread. But, that data could be something cached (perhaps by accident) in some module you have pulled in, for example.

Update: Or it could be time spent destroying the second interpreter instance.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
