Subject: Syperl startup performance.
Date: Feb 8 1996 8:55AM
I have a performance problem with Sybperl 2.0.3, as
1) If I run a perl script which just has following line in it
print "Hello World\n";
The script will take just under 1second to execute.
2) But if I add the following line before the print line
The script takes about 4-5 seconds to run. I am aware CTlib has
a large overhead when starting up, but this still seems too long.
3) If I replace the CTlib line with the following
The script takes between 2-3 seconds to run.
Why is there such an overhead in starting Sybperl, be it CT or DB lib?
Is there a way of speeding up the startup times?
Perl = 5.001m
Sybperl = 2.0.3
OS = Solaris 2.4
Sybase = 10.0.2
Machine = SS20
