Yesterday I started investigating an "interesting" problem in our shiny new "Storage abstraction layer".
It's a new set of classes designed to solve the problem of how to handle static resources like images, thumbnails, favicons,
Anyway, that is using WebDAV as one of the server "backends", and in fact, we're now using
mod_dav enabled servers to distribute our content.
Now I'm in the process of exporting hundreds of thousands of pictures, in 5 different formats, with a single script to many DAV servers, I'm noticing a steady increase of memory usage.
I tried to track down the problem, and it seems to live within
HTTP::DAV, where there's at least one circular reference between
HTTP::DAV::Resource back to
HTTP::DAV parent object.
I tried also to get some information out of Perlmonks, or web searching in general about this issue, but found nothing.
Any pointers or similar experiences?
