( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks. How about on the Linux Platform? Since my case the script was failing on Windows but works good on Linux, so there must be some difference in the mechanism. While running the script, I ran the top command and noticed that there are multiple processes for perl each having a unique PID. So, in case of Linux multiple processes are spawned, is that correct?
I want to know, what are the factors I need to consider while setting the value of MAX_CHILDREN setting in my program. I think it depends on the amount memory available, the processor speed and the Internet Connection speed. What would be a good setting? I am running my script inside an Ubuntu Virtual Machine with 2 Gb of memory allocated to the VM and 2 i7 Processor cores allocated to it. I have set the value for MAX_CHILDREN to 15 at present, and the script seems to run properly. Can I increase it further, for instance to a value like 20? I believe, memory releases happen automatically.
