  +average time it took to make a single <CODE>stat()</CODE> call. I'm sampling a 1M stats, so I'd get a correct average result.
  +
  +<P>
  +Before we actually run the script one should destinguish between two
  +different situation. When the server is idle the time between the first and
  +the last system call will be much shorter than the same time measured on
  +the loaded system. That is because on the idle system, a process can use
  +CPU very often, and on the loaded system lots of processes compete over it
  +and each process has to wait for a longer time to get the same amount of
  +CPU time.
  +
  +<P>
  +So first we run the above code on the unloaded system:
  +
  +<P>
  +
  +    <table>

  +	    
  +      </tr>
  +    </table>
  +    <P>
  +So it takes about 4 microseconds to execute a <CODE>stat()</CODE> call. Now
  +let start a CPU intensive process in one console. The following code keeps
  +CPU busy all the time.

  +

  +	    
  +      </tr>
  +    </table>
  +    <P>
  +You can see that the average time has doubled (about 8 microseconds). And
  +this is obvious, since there were two processes competing over CPU. Now if
  +run 4 occurences of the above code:
  +
  +<P>

  +        </td>

  +    </table>
  +    <P>
  +about 20 microseconds. So the average <CODE>stat()</CODE> system call is 5
  +times longer now. Now if you have 50 mod_perl processes that keep the CPU
  +busy all the time, the <CODE>stat()</CODE> call will be 50 times slower and
  +it'll take 0.2 milliseconds to complete a series of call. If you have five
  +redundant calls as in the strace example above, they adds up to one
  +millisecond. If you have more processes constantly consuming CPU, this time
  +adds up. Now multiply this time by the number of processes that you have
  +and you get a few seconds lost. As usual, for some services this loss is
  +insignificant, while for others a very significant one.

  +<P>
  +So why Apache does all these redundant <CODE>stat()</CODE> calls? You can blame the default installed <CODE>TransHandler</CODE> for this inefficiency. Of course you could supply your own, which will be
