preloading in general makes sense when you are able to amortize the upfront penalty from start up over the lifetime of the running application. So if you have a highly stable application that's never restarted, then it's probably worth a few minutes of "warm up" time at the start. If you're going to be restarting often or the preload is simply too much work for the reward, then you're better off lazily loading at runtime via require.

Update - I thought I should add what I knew to be true (at some point) and isn't a secret, cPanel pays people a a lot of money to maintain a build infrastructure that uses B::C to generate a binary from Perl simply to improve start up time of their administrative daemon, cpservd. Basically, many MBs of initializations and module loads are shoved into a BEGIN{}. The binary is the state of the perl start up through BEGIN (like what you get by invoking perl -c). My point is that this is also an option - if you have a lot of stuff to preload, B::C can be used to get you into a state where start up actually picks up after BEGIN.

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.
