( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The reason I'm doing that is cause I've read, on node Using fork with DBI to create simultaneous db connections., that DBI hates forking and you must use a new DBI connection for each child. Else you'll get DBI stepping on it's feet and causing unpredictable results.

Initial thought of creating the script was to run a child for each system; each system runs aprox 45 seconds upto 1 minu 30 seconds before it finishes.


for($i = 0; $i < $numchilds; $i++) {fork;  connect; while (get_task) {run_task}; disconnect; exit;}

You're suggesting taking the pool of tasks, split them into 5 arrays and then run them?

My tasks is updating a load of 100+ server stats in a database. I'll have to use some kind of splitting to split the array of hosts into 5 arrays (as evenly as possible) for splitting into individual forks.

That's a possiblity...

Thanks, I'll try that.

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).
