( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm curious, did any of that help? I can't imagine it shaved more than a few hundred k. And a lot of that "saving" would be in shared libs that are probably already in memory.

You're not giving us a lot of details to work with here, but here's a few random suggestions. First, turn off caching - lots of modules support caching data and you don't want them to do that if memory is scarce. Second, switch to straight CGI if you're using mod_perl - mod_perl is fast because it keeps your app in memory, but you don't want that. CGI will immediately release all memory used by a script as soon as it returns results. Finally, look critically at which modules are being used and make sure you really need them. Having a Project::All module with use statements for all your CPAN modules is very convenient but it will kill your memory usage if you're running a script that only needs a few deps.

If you want more useful advice you'll have to give us more information - what does the app do, what CPAN modules does it use, does it leak memory, etc.

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.
