What could cause excessive page faults?by BrowserUk (Pope)
|on Mar 11, 2010 at 00:36 UTC||Need Help??|
BrowserUk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
If I run this:
It takes 6/100ths sec; consumes 84MB and causes 24,000 page faults.
2/10ths ec; 108MB; 30,000 page faults.
32 seconds; 140MB; 5.7 million page faults?
But most confusingly:
8 seconds; 72MB; 1.5 million page faults.
Any thoughts where to start looking?
This is Perl 5.10.1 (AS1007) 64-bit on windows. Other platforms are almost certainly not affected.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
