in reply to Re^5: Unexpected Timing spikes using Time::HiRes
in thread Unexpected Timing spikes using Time::HiRes
many thanks, that does sound logical. The thing that I find unusal though is sometimes I get spikes above 15.625 - can you think of a reason that might cause that?
Actually, I think I just figured it out, the spike of 265.625 is exactly 17 x 15.625 - so whatever process was in the way held onto the CPU for 17 timeslots past what the script was expecting, right?
Regarding Time::HiRes version, I'm using $VERSION = '1.9707';
