In a version of Cacti to be released in the 2005 timeframe, we will be chaning the default processing for perl scripts to speed their execution by a few orders of magnitude.

As a result, I recommend that if you have not done so already, that you plan an upgrade to PHP v5. This version of PHP will allow Perl to be bound to PHP without explicitely launching specific instances of Perl for each script.

This new feature will speed Cacti's execution of Perl scripts on the same order of magnitude as was seen in the script server for PHP scripts.

Just a note to those who love Perl.

I'm still out there people. Getting excited for Cacti 1.2. I think it will be a great release.

Good to know.

For those of us running Cacti on Redhat Enterprise, perl 5 is not available yet from rhn & I do not know if Dag has it in his repository.

egarnel,

You mean PHP 5, right? I have a feeling it will take them a while to get PHP5 released as an RHN update .. look at how long MysQL 4.x has been out without an RHN RPM.

Thanks for the perspective on RHN.
