I'm sorry to say it, but I think these guys are on the wrong track. To get the environment they're trying to build in mod_perl, all you have to do is set MaxRequestsPerChild to 1. Then the processes exit after one request and you get a fresh, pre-forked process with a pristine Perl interpreter for the next request. You can do something similar with FastCGI, and FastCGI already has the wide availability in cheap ISPs that they say they want. In fact, mod_perl even already has the feature they want with blessed modules that stay in memory: just load them in startup before forking and they will be there already compiled, even with the MaxRequestsPerChild approach.

Why does no one do this with mod_perl or FastCGI? Because the performance is pretty bad compared to letting your code, database handles, and cached data stick around between requests.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
