database on Opteron using FC2 with non-threaded perl 5.8.5. I built
apache, mod_perl, and perl from source. We didn't have any 64-bit
related problems with the web app. The opteron is a very fast machine.
Now, to go off the mod_perl topic for a few sentences, we did experience
some crashes due to i/o intensive batch operations. The code was opening
thousands of file handles very quickly. I found one relevant link on
google which unfortunately I don't have access to anymore, but it cited a
crash occurring while using bonnie++ for benchmarking on opteron.
We had another issue with occasional segfaults of long running (7+ days)
programs which consumed enormous (15G+) amounts of memory. Suffice to say
though, we were going beyond normal usage, and encountered a few dragons.
