bugzilla-startup-load-modules.diff

Generally speaking, it's a good idea to preload as many Perl modules as possible during startup, this way, the code and memory used is shared across all children process.

In the case of Bugzilla, it does some of that via mod_perl.pl but looks like some things are being missed.

Following patch alters startup to report modules loaded at run-time.

This means there should probably a review of this in production and the proper modules added to mod_perl.pl

In my test setup, for instance, it reported this after hitting show_bug.cgi once:

a fair number of these are because they are conditionally loaded by bugzilla or dependencies.

instead of trying to pre-determine the list, it should be possible to simply track modules which have been loaded at runtime in a file, and then pre-load those modules the next time the worker restarts.

979441_1.patch

here's the changes to mod_perl which implement the "record what is loaded at run-time, preload that next time we startup" approach.

this should go upstream, but i'd like to measure the difference this makes before pushing it upstream.

if this gets an r+ i intend on committing it to bugzilla-dev and letting it run there for a while.

This looks good to me, I don't notice a change in performance though.

I see we use this in other files, but I don't see it in the list of REQUIRED_MODULES or OPTIONAL_MODULES and it isn't in corelist. Why is that? We must implicitly depend on it via some other module as it is always installed...

nit: eval { require $string } instead of do $string

Should I change the status of this bug to ASSIGNED and set approval? and Milestone? I can't do either because it is NEW.

no; we don't do approvals or milestones on bmo bugs.
