in thread When to use forks, when to use threads ...?

So I would ask, as your memory climbed, did the system slowdown, or did things keep running normally.

I watched the RES column from ps's output, first via top, then also using a code snippet taken out from Process::MaxSize like

[...] my $size; open PIPE, "/bin/ps wwaxo 'pid,rss' |"; while(<PIPE>) { next unless /^\s*$$\s/; s/^\s+//g; chomp; $size = (split(' ', $_))[1]; } close PIPE; return $size; }
I didn't wait to let the system really slowdown, but stopped when it became obvious that swapping would have to start.
