Hello Oscar,

I don't have much idea why you are seeing such a big difference in 
response time.
But I do have some further questions that may be useful to you or to 
someone else on the mailing list that may have a clue what is happening.

First of all, logic would seem to indicate that if we are seeing this 
big of change in the result, then something must have changed in the 
A suggested task would be to try to figure out what is different.
Could there be any new programs running on your system that might be 
causing contention of some sort?

If you are using an intranet classified network, does this mean that you 
are using network protocols other than TCP/IP?

Since you are using perl scripts, are you also using mod_perl?

We would like to discern which part of the request/response round trip 
is using up the extra time.
Is the time lost in the Apache httpd server, mod_perl, the perl script 
or in the access to the database?
Would it be possible to run your perl scripts directly from a shell and 
compare the response time to the overall response time through the httpd
