Re: sleep now

mod_perl is nice when you have memory. On these boxes, I do not. So FastCGI is ideal.

I'd fix the leaks but the biggest leaks are from DBI and URI. (i.e. not my code). As long as I exit cleanly after serving a request nothing gets dropped and the fcgi process manager just starts a new one.... it's clean. ;)

Re: sleep now

mod_perl uses a little more, if not the same, than FastCGI, but I think in the long run you'll still gain performance. I used to think the same until I actually did some research on it.

Read up on this URL:

And this URL is *awesome* for performance tips:

Note the sections on shared memory. I used to agree with you on the FastCGI vs mod_perl, but after working with mod_perl for the last 6 months and reading up on it, it gets harder and harder to complain about it. Of course what you use is totally up to you, but I think you should switch as soon as possible before further development continues.

Bye for now!
