Squishdot great, will there ever be a port?
How-To Posted by Kil on Wednesday May 09, 05:39AM, 2001
from the This is prolly silly dept.

I love squishdot... I have loved it from day one. Unfortunately tho, the amount of memory zope is using because it spawns a seperate python instance for every server child is annoying

Does SquishDot ever plan on porting to other platforms.. such as PHP/MySql?

    Yaknow, I bet you're using top and I bet you're reading it wrong ;-) The memory top shows for each process is actually the total memory consumed by the whole lot of them. Go search the Zope archives for an explanation of this.

    Apart from that, what Zope version and Squishdot version are you using?

    cheers,

    Chris

    PS: I'm never gonna port Squishdot, the whole reason it works and works so well is the power and flexibility that Zope provides :-P

    It does not spawn a separate Python instance for every server child. Zope is threaded, so it creates new threads, which share the Python instance and most everything else.

    Perhaps you're being deceived by Linux's use of a process ID per thread. If this is the case, rest assured that it's not using as much memory as those utilities make you think it is.

      Actually it is...

      when I run zope, Im getting about 82% memory usage on a 64MB server. Counting up the memory for each zope thread and its corresponding python instance, I get the same amount of memory.

      Only reason why I posted that here is because I like squishdot so much, I didnt want to think about the idea of not being able to use it because the platform it runs on eats up memory.

        82% even after you pack? 64MB RAM is awfully little, anyhoo. I would pack often, setup a cron to pack remotely to get more memory.

      • Zope Version? Squishdot Version?

        You could actually answer my question... ;-)

        BTW, The platform it runs on is the most stable and flexible web application server I've found.

        cheers,

        Chris
