I would think that the benefit over FastCGI only comes in a few cases -- if you have _lots_ of CGIs on the system that only get called rarely, then there isn't the memory overhead for each individual script (and all of its included modules, etc.)

It's possible that there might also be a benefit to hosting companies in terms of supporting it ... like when a script starts going wonky and you have to explain how they've not bothered initializing their variables to zero / empty / whatever, or something else is sticking around and not getting cleaned up. (memory leaks, accidental closures, etc.)

As for the performance benefit over pure CGI -- I'm guessing that it only comes if the cost of reinitializing the interpreter is cheaper than loading in the first place -- if they can get the reinitializing cost down, then they'll improve performance of systems using this module.

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