in thread File::Tail or Time::HiRes

That is a very real possibility, because this log file does in fact reside on a NFS share. I will definately check that now and let everyone know. Man that was a great catch, if in fact it does pan out that way. Thanks for your insight. Also I may limit the File::Tail module to a specific time period. But thanks to all that replied.

    I'll save you some time--NFS is completely irrelevant.
