long confusing story short.... i have a task for a game i play, that i wish to perform at least once daily.. i find myself putting it off, doing part of it.. etc due to some issues on windows...
this task involves opening around 3,000 tabs within about a 25 minute period of time.. each tab is read with greasemonkey, and uses the HTTP system in GM to hidden-like open a new tab for each of the previous 3000 (this ones are just to send data to a server, using $_GET the page it downloads is usually blank..
so in total, around 6,000 tabs within 25 minutes.. first of all, firefox on windows isn't multi-threaded.. (unsure if it is on *nix?) and the "highly stable" version of firefox on windows is 32bit.. the 64bit does the task a bit better.. but still not up to par..
the rig performing this task will be my sig rig.. does anyone have any suggestions on what flavor of linux or certain settings to use to get my task to be as easy as possible?? (in the long run?)
ideally i would like to only take a few minutes to do the entire task.. all without my system being laggy stalling etc.. on windows, it really bogs down after the first 300 or so tabs, and then wants to crash at about 800-1300.. then the fact it doesn't seem to be able to max out my ISP.. it seems to be software limiting..
