in reply to Reduce CPU utilization time in reading file using perl

You're saying your file is over 5 TB (terabytes) in size... is that what you actually meant? Unless your system has a few TB of memory, good luck.

The differing CPU utilization is probably from a multi-core processor. Without multi-threading, you'll never use more than 1 core at a time.
