in reply to Improving Perl Speeds in Apache

It's a combination of several things. Here's the biggies.

  • Using mod_perl
  • Implementing your program(s) as an apache handler or Apache::Registry
  • Pre-loading all modules
  • Caching all needed data and expensive queries (this really helps)
  • Optimal SQL queries if you're using some type of database
  • General coding efficiency (writing tight code, using references, optimising accessor functions, etc.)
  • If you're returning huge pages, mod_gzip really helps cut down on transfer time
  • Tuning apache's MinSpareServers, MaxSpareServers, etc
  • Use tt2 instead of HTML::Template. It's great, and the new XS-based Template::Stash is spiffy

Hope this helps.
