TSIA. Somehow the wsproxy (here) starts grabbing CPU like it's no tomorrow. I'd like it to autodetect that and kill itself (maybe giving some diagnostics as to *where* it's buzy-looping).

You should take a look to the BSD::Resource module ( focus on getrusage to now how much a process consume cpu time )

Hope this will help you in your quest of wisdom

A simple cpan search resulted in Proc::ProcessTable::Process. You easily extract CPU-usage from that.

Hope this helps
