    Your own server! If it's unaffordable now, keep typing and selling, eventually it will be and then you can run anything you want...

    (Yeah I know, it's not a way to make ae use less CPU cycles, but it'll take care of having to worry about being shut down for CPU usage! Just as long as you don't crash the thing you're all set...)

    It is a beautiful thing, to do nothing, and then rest afterwards.~Spanish Proverb

    yes, that's a good long term solution. But are there any optimizations I might do to see that resource use is are being minimized?

    ae.pl is not designed to run under mod_perl

    Edit ae.ini and set pagesize to 10 to reduce server resource usage.

    David,

    If you're useing LWP check out SimpleGet
    http://home.earthlink.net/~mrob/pub/perl/SimpleGet.txt

    I've started using it instead of LWP and it cut the CPU usage in half and dropped memory usage by over a meg.

    Timeouts are flaky but if I get no response to the get I wait a second and retry (up to 3 times) and that seems to work well.
