Another release of Perlbal is out:
And you'll need version 1.25 of Danga::Socket:
And Linux::AIO 1.3 from CPAN.
Changes since 1.00:
-- when internally redirecting a URL, perlbal advertises
that it supports persisent HTTP connections now,
and caches those sockets for 5 seconds. (not configurable)
useful under load, otherwise you waste all local ports
on a machine
-- ditch dependence on IO::SendFile. do it ourselves (1 line)
with perl's syscall function
-- add doc/* and conf/* to MANIFEST file
Don't let the low version number fool you ... we've been using Perlbal (on
a few machines) for 20-40 millions of hits per day.
We're still working on docs, but at least doc/* and conf/* are now in the
tarball, which are pretty helpful.
