( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am already past the "working" phase and in the "optimisation" phase.I'm curious about efficiency in terms of "best programming practise". The program (to large to post) creates a file consisting of N records and an index containing key info like fpos markers at the end. (the records consist of the stdout/stderr of several o/s commands and files => 30-50Mb/server for almost 100 servers)

The program currently reads the index first, then processes & reads each record as it requires it while processing the data-file. I'm trying find a faster solution, i.e. performing larger sequential reads upfront. Of course, it may have extra considerations, such as an max. slurp size.

This exercise will be worth it (in my mind at least) if I can understand the margin by which

<sequential slurp><process><process><process>

operations are faster than

<slurp 1 record><process><slurp next record><process> ...

Hope this makes sense.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
