O.k. there has been a lot of discussion in regards to what the best
method to take with PostgreSQL Win32 is.
It seems that the community is set on using CreateProcess. If this is
the case I have a couple of further questions:
1. Are we just a bunch of Unix coders trying to develop a product for
Win32 or are there any people a part
of the Win32 port project that actually have REAL, hardcore experience
coding at the system level for Win32?
I am not trying to be an antagonist but I it is a legitamate question.
2. Have we built a test case? For example:
We have a client that connects to a server. For every connection we
start a new process and write 1k to disk from the client.
Connect in varying degrees from 5 connection to say 500 connections.
Do it with CreateProcess and the with CreateThread... Time the
difference, and review the load on the server during the tests...
What is the difference? Maybe it is nominal enough not to worry
about it... Maybe it's not.
