[tahoe-dev] profiling part 2: what goes on in the Python interpreter during uploading

Folks:

I uploaded ten files in sequence, each file containing 1 mebibyte of  
random data.  The hotshot profiler reported this afterward.

This shows that it took about 330 seconds to do the upload, and that  
the part of our code that took the most time was the logging, which  
used less than 3% of the total time.  (I guess this might be due it  
occasionally blocking for disk writes rather than it actually being  
CPU-intensive.)

So as far as this test shows, I'm happy with how lightweight a tahoe  
node is on the CPU during uploading.

Regards,

Zooko
