( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Well actualy I dont think my code is that bad/slow :)

I'll try to find exact code that recently made problems to one of my "customers". It's some banner rotation script. And he puted ~ 8 banners on the pages (wich means on each page request, you get extra 8 calls of that CGI/Perl script). And his server went down.

He belives that particular script made problems as once he removed it, server was faster, and didnt went down since. Nothing else was added/removed so ...

Of course that doesnt mean it's scripts fault for shure, nor that he couldnt have done it some other way that wouldnt call it 8 times per each page.


So where can I find a way to test the speed of the script? I mean, how many request per second can it process, or something like that? Someone wrote that forking is speeded up these days. So let's test it out. Maybe it's only bad code ...

PS. The funiest thing about that script, is that it's creator - said he should normaly only place 2 - 3 banners per page :)
