You may be asking the wrong question.

Why do you need more CPU time? Is your process not getting all available time? Is it competing with other processes? (If so, why can't those other processes use less time?)

Is the process IO bound? If so, getting more CPU time won't help. One way to check this is to simulate all IO by generating fake data for the process to chew on, but don't read or write from disk or other resources outside of the CPU/memory group. If the process suddenly speeds up by an order of magnitude, you need faster IO, not more CPU time. On the other hand, if simulating IO doesn't change the behavior, then either the process is swapping memory to disk, or it's CPU bound.

If it's CPU bound, do you know why? What part of the process is taking the most time? Have you profiled it with one of the Devel profiling modules? (My favorite is Devel::SmallProf, though there are others with different strengths.])

Title:
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.
