To support multi-processor to speed up the analysis process

Nov 5, 2010 at 3:23 PM

Thanks for the excellent tool.

It seems the PAL only use single processor to do the analysis. The whole process is extremely slow for a large log (e.g. 500MB). Is that possible to use the multi-processor to speed up the analysis.

I'm sure it could be made to be multi-threaded, but are you sure that processor time is the real bottleneck? I find that when I kick off a second instance of PAL (2 running at the same time), that performance degrades typically. Also, I have to admit, that I don't know how to do multi-threading in PowerShell. I can certainly look into it for future versions, but to be honest there is more need for it to be localized to handle non-English counter logs and locales. If you are able to find a solution to either problem, then please let me know. Thank you.

I guess you can use "-AsJob" parameter and "StartJob" in Poweshell, to become multi-threaded.

I run many multiples of PAL in parallel using PowerShell and see great throughput, would be nice if each PAL analysis was multi threaded too?

Second this thread, would be fantastic if this was multi threaded
