Here's a Christmas puzzle for you, or /Is there an answer to this/?
Our main machine loads Netsurf quite slowly and today I've carried
out a few simple timing tests on five of our RPSs all running NS
build 19.12.2005, although I'm pretty sure the build is nothing to
do with it.
These are the results:-
-memory is free memory before loading NS
-HL is the number of addresses in the hotlist
TopOffice RO4.39S 41MB 40HL 27secs
Server4 RO4.02 80MB 1HL 04
RPC03 RO4.39S 101MB 10HL 06
RPC04 RO4.39A 37MB 8HL 05
RPC07 RO4.39S 23MB 10HL 05
I've not delved into this any further, but could the size of the
hotlist be directly proportional to the loading time?
Whilst the machine are not exactly the same they are pretty similar
as we try to keep the boot files sympathetic.
