Does incorrect XML lead to CPU strain?
PHP Sablotron module

 11:20 am on Oct 17, 2002 (gmt 0)

Hi all,

One of the tech guys at my host company tells me that he's heard that incorrect XML used with PHP's Sablotron module can lead to Big CPU Drain.

Anyone know anything about this?

I imagine if anything was causing an error, though still displaying, and the traffic was high, this makes sense.

Eg, your scripts are working, but every time they run, a hundred errors are written in the the access log...now imagine a 100 visitors a day, each hitting the script, thus generating 10,000 new lines in the error log.

Cascading errors can definitely bring system performance down.

Is that the kind of thing that you are worried about, or something very PHP, sablotron, and XML specific? :)
