C program in Unix / Linux - Time differences

Hi Friends,

When Iam running c program in redhat linux 7.3 version and PCQ Linux 8.0 version, its taking around 20 seconds. But when Iam running it in HP-UX Release 11i, its taking around 3 minutes. Can anyone throw light on this.

Thanks in advance,

Are all hardware configuations same for different boxes?

It does not just depend on the hardware configuration. You have to account for the load on the box as well.
By the way, it is highly unlikely that the linux boxes and the HP box have the same hardware configuration.

Thanks for your replies. To my surprise ,even my program is occupying 70 - 80% of CPU time and load on server is not high its taking 3 minutes in UNIX.

Can you suggest me a way so that I can bring down the excution time in HP Unix down to that of Linux time. Whether this issue may be related to buffering of files. At present I didn't enforced buffering files in my c program. Whether using setvbuf() or setbuf()commands during file i/o can increase the performance.

Before jumping off the deep end into a quagmire, do this on HP UX:
cc -g -p mycode.c -o mycode let your code run...........
prof mycode

prof will give you a display of where your program's functions are spending time.
By the way, -p links a few monitoring functions into your code, so don't think something is broken whn you see them in your display.

Go from there, don't just guess that setbuf() is the problem - unless you called setbuf() to turn off buffering completely.
