Use available benchmarking software like Big Brother to optimize your system. Your current testing scheme may become invalid if you uncover network anomalies (or are you looking for network anomalies?). Have a simple script pound your webserver locally (assuming that it's a dedicated webserver) or over a connection that is otherwise dead of traffic. Every machine most likely has an IP (metaserver setup, right?), so use that in your call to LWP::Simple. Fork a multitude of fake browsers and see how many concurrent hits the server can take. Do this with all the machines and compare results. Good luck.

I just thought of an easier way. I believe most webservers have some benchmarking capabilites. In that case, throw a benchmark patch onto the metaserver to time how much each serve is taking in response to the same web page being retrieved repeatedly. You'll be easily able to pick out the slow poke!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
