Hi everyone.

I have a program that does a lot of file IO, multiple DBI DB access, 
even spawns a perl program and uses that output.  The program runs in 
about 7 minutes.  Where I add require "profile" to the main file, the 
program can be running for hours and still not finish.

I killed the program and removed the file writing, there is still a 
lot of file reading, and I removed the system calls that spawn a perl 
program, but it still takes hours and I end up killing the process.

I have looked around but could not find any major "problems" with 
running the profiler on the web.  Are there certain types of calls 
that are known to cause issues with the profiler?

Any insight would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Walt
