So, for the record, is 44 seconds on a high-end machine acceptable
for ifconfig -a on 4000 interfaces? It doesn't bother me enough to
re-write a patch that will never be accepted, but if it were my code,
I'd change it to make it faster :)
You showed 'ip' can do it in 5, 5 is certainly acceptable :-)
ifconfig can be implemented in terms of 'ip' (I thought most
dists were doing this already too) so it's basically a moot
point what ifconfig can do.
BTW what kind of tty did you send the output too? Maybe retry with
And if you list 4000 interfaces, what are you going to do with the
output? Read it with your eyes? Grep stuff? If the latter, put the
ifconfig output into a file once, then do all your grep'ification
passes on the file.
But again with 'ip' it is 5 seconds... it really isn't an issue.
