Net::Daemon replacement?

on Jul 25, 2006 at 15:06 UTC ( #563543=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

pjnet has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've been handed a module that uses Net::Daemon and am trying to work out if it's doing the job it's supposed to be doing, and if not, what I should be replacing it with.

Currently, it's running a daemon (well there are 2 actually) that takes in a simple custom markup syntax and returns data (simple eh).

However, I need it to be highly multithreaded and share data across those threads as it is run from a CGI script. This CGI script can call the daemon several times for each request, so if the CGI script gets called 3000 times, it's possible there are 15000 connections to the daemons.

Now, it's been running slow ever since it was put on, and I need to figure out if Net::Daemon is a good solution. or whether I can/should look to replace it. It seems nobody has been talking about it for years, so any suggestions of other modules to replace it would be appreciated. Replacing would be quite trivial.

Failing that, is there any decent (ie better than the perldoc) documentation and examples for Net::Daemon, as the perldoc isn't hugely clear.

      makes sense. Was looking into it before I got your response.

    Net::Server looks more uptodate.
