Subject Re: Dynamlcally loading modules at run-time
Date Thu, 03 Oct 2002 15:09:49 GMT

Hi Jochen,

I'd recommend having a read of this
http://perl.apache.org/docs/1.0/guide/performance.html#Sharing_Memory

Not sure how much it applies to your situation, but basically, unless the 
different modules are very large and rarely used you really want to load them 
all at server startup. That way your server processes will be sharing the 
majority of your code and memory use will be optimised increasing the number 
of server processes you'll be able to run. Loading more modules after startup 
will increase the size of each process independantly, increasing your overall 
memory use.

cheers,

J
