part was being developed in Java. While my daemons read, process and
write results directly in binary data files, Java still was parsing the
binary input files, because it hadn't binary operators. The solution
wasn't to kick java, it was to convert all data to xml. Since then
there wasn't a significant difference between my C daemons and Java
programs, because network (100MB ethernet) becames the bottleneck and

sysop team fault (the guys that controlled the network) that didn't
design and measure the expected traffic.
