    Is This Fast


    I am currently writing a chat program. It is a fairly advanced Chat system. It is actually comparable to IRC. Although my chat system has added features such as Voice Communication Support and Advanced File Sharing Features. Anyway, I still have yet to finish it but was testing some performance stuff on my ChannelHandler class. I can create 20000 channels (all with topics and passwords and names and several more options) within 17seconds. I was wondering if this is a good time or not. This test was done on a 2.0ghz Pentium 4 with 1gig RAM. Its creating approximately 1170 Channels / second. I just need to know if this is fast enough to compete with IRC in speed and performance. Memory usage is also only at 20megs.

    You can't really measure that kind of performance in seconds like that. You also have to measure how much your program grows over time, if it slows down noticably, etc.

    Does it allow multiple servers to synchronize like IRC does? (Yay netsplits)
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
