Subject: Some of the slow tests are taking 15+ minutes
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 546b
I've installed DBM::Deep on a number of machines, and generally the tests that say "can take up to several minutes to run" have run in under a minute. I'm installing perl on a dedicated server, and everything thus far has been noticeably faster. But some of the 'slow tests' are taking 15+ minutes, which is surprising, and worrying for my app. This is 64-bit Linux, Perl 5.16.2. Any thoughts on why this is, and are there any options for addressing whatever the problem is? Happy to dig in to the code, with some direction. Cheers, Neil
05_bigarray.t was taking even longer, so I ended up killing the install.

The slow tests are slow because they hit disk quite a bit. One of them, for example, builds a 1000-level hash. A few things to try: 1. Do you notice a similar slowdown on the same machine, but with 5.14 or 5.12? 2. Can you run the tests with TMPDIR on a ramdisk and see if that speeds things up?
