    SubjectProcess Creation Speed
    Date
    Why does creating and then terminating a process in GNU/Linux take about 6.3
    ms on a Prestonia-2.2? I observe basically the same thing on a PIII-600.

    I'm pretty sure both systems run 2.4.x kernels. Does this suck less under
    2.6.x? Not sucking at all would mean about 100 microseconds to me. I don't
    understand why it doesn't scale with processor speed. Does this interact
    with the length of a timeslice?

    It matters to me because the Common Gateway Interface spawns and destroys a
    process to handle each request, and I wish it were just fast, rather than
    having to use FastCGI.

    A fair amount of Googling and RTFFAQ didn't answer this.
