I've tested the CVS source 20031217 10:00AM (GMT+1) to see if fork/spawn
works on Multi CPU (4 Xeon) with Windows 2003 Server (see old message
about it in the mailing list). Unfortunatly It doesn't !
Below a test script, use it by running run_t.sh. After some time (< 1
minute) one or more of the 5 sub-shell stop. This batch works perfectly
using a single P4 cpu on Windows XP !
I don't know how many people out there have Multi CPU Xeons, but I
suspect there aren't many. This works fine in my single CPU system,
as you note.
Thanks in advance, Philippe.
PS 1 : 4-5th attempt to send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org using three
different mail account, gmane newgroup ! Anti-spam ? :(
Yes. ZIP file attachments.
PS 2 : Vital for me that this works before end of the month !
Sorry, but why would your urgency have any bearing on a community,
We have been surprised by our first test on a multi CPU engine, after
one year of development without big problem (only a tee problem and
rsync not very usable (now using robocopy instead)). And now we are
close to the delivery on 3 Multi CPU Xeon. But probably like you, we
have only mono processor PC, Pentium 3, Pentium 4 and Athlon XP.
I know that threaded applications are difficult to develop. I think you
are our chance to correct this.
I can do test for you, but I can't give you access to this system !
I'm going to bed, thank you.
