c++ compilation slow on solaris using forte 6.1



  • 1. zfs on a pc: can xp run atop it, still benefit from disk zpools, etc?
    Subj: zfs on a pc: can xp run atop it, still benefit from disk zpools, etc? Say some fancy server implemented in xp or 7 or whatever M$ system. But disks can crash, say, giving big problem to non-technical there in the office. Seems like zfs would be a pretty cool solution -- keeping server etc in same xp code as before: Install solaris 10 or 11 on the x86 machines, setting disk mirrors, etc, via zfs and zpools. Now, that server software still expects to run under xp or whatever M$ OS. So, could you then via solaris 10 magic install an xp or whatever ON TOP OF solaris 10, and have server etc run in THAT xp? And now, if cheap disk crashes, and there's a 5-disk mirror or pool or whatever, it'd all be handled automatically -- and can wait to get fixed three days later when the guru comes in. Until then, no one even knows there's been a problem. ---- I guess it depends on xp not knowing about the zpool stuff n-layers down, and thinking it's writing directly to its own disk -- or something like that. Possible? Thanks! David

  • 5. Solaris 10 X86 on HP EliteBook 8440p installation issue
    I was trying to install Solaris 10 update 9 for X86 on HP EliteBook 8440p (intel CORE i5 CPU, 3G memory). Right after the machine loaded the kernel file (after those ............), I hear the huge fire-drill sound from the laptop and the installation hangs. I tried a few times, and it is all the same. I would think probably I need to turn off some features in the BIOS. I tried tuen off Hyper Threading, Mulitiple Core, TXT technology, Virtualization etc. But that didn't help. Do we have a way to see what causes the problem as I don't see much info on the screen... Thanks.

c++ compilation slow on solaris using forte 6.1

I have a program which heavily uses templates. I am using forte 6.1
compiler. My prblem is that compilation is very slow on solaris. If i
compile the same program with MS Visual studio 6.0, it compiles very fast. I
tried using "-instance=explicit" option of forte compiler. This did
compilation relatively faster but gave me problem in linking like "duplicate
definition or declaration". I have to change the source code to remove these
errors which compiles perfectly otherwise. I thought of precompiled header
also as option but this is not supported in forte6.1. Do anyone of you have
idea how can compile my code faster with minimal code changes. One more
observation : All this slowness is because of templates instantiation which
creates "Templates_DB" and i guess SunWS_Cache also. Is there anyway to
avoid these. I dont understand how "MS Visual studio 6.0"  is compiling the
same code faster ! ! !

If this is not correct newsgroup for this question, please tell me the
correct one.

Thanks a lot,

give sonone studio 8 a try, it compiles much faster.

I have seen things you lusers would not believe.
I've seen Sun monitors on fire off the side of the multimedia lab.
I've seen NTU lights glitter in the dark near the Mail Gate.
All these things will be lost in time, like the root partition last week.
Time to die.

The usual things
Try to put your files on the local machine rather than on a network
Avoid recompiling as much as possible (decouple interface from
Explicitly specialize the templates yourself

1.Sun One Studio 8 for C++ - Size in memory bigger than previous using Forte 6

Hi all,

we are working on Solaris 8, and developping C++ application.

We just upgraded our compiler from Forte 6 Upgrade 2 to Sun One Studio 8,
and saw
that the size of the executable in memory is bigger with a factor of 3 than
the same executable
compiled with the Forte 6 compiler.
If generating 64 BIT code, the size in memory grows more than if using 32
BIT application.

Is there any reason of this behaviour or a way to reduce the size in memory
without stripping the code ?

Thanks for any tips.
