( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Its interesting that this thread resurfaced now, as just yesterday I posted a patch to p5p to change the hash function that we use from the "OneAtATime" function to the "SuperFastHash" by Paul Hsieh. Details of both can be found in an updated version of Bob Jenkins hash article from DrDobs. The SFH is signifigantly faster than OneAtATime on modern machines, with SFH running about 3 times as fast as OneAtATime.

Anyway, id be curious if you have any tools or scripts that can be used to do some analysis on how the two functions perform. I plan to instrument a version of perl so I can do chain length histograms and things like that, but anything you might think of would be appreciated.

    [tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
    [davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
    [tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
    davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
    [davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
    [davido]: when i do get to that point I think I'll do it in a vm snapshot just in case. :)
    [oiskuu]: tye, you were right: loginuid/sessionid are part of task struct if compiled with AUDITSYSCALL. I have some doubts if you should actually depend on that feature.
    [Corion]: oiskuu: Depends on what you want to do with that information
    [tye]: I'm not depending on that feature. But I could in this environment. I'm using getlogin(). shrug
    [Corion]: For benign logging (which user started this DB instance), it's OK
