PDF::SimpleTable performance issues

Hello,

I am having performance issues ending with a ‘time out’ from Apache when
I try to generate a PDF file using pdf-writer.

It seems to happen at the render_on(pdf) function call ; the table I am
trying to draw has 8 colums which values are generated on the fly.

Can’t find anything about pdf-writer and the ‘time out’ on the Web so
far.

Any ideas ? Anybody experienced the same issue ?
Is there any more friendly user and faster PDF generation tool ?

Thank’s,
Jonathan.

I’ve ran into this error with fop and java (years ago). I haven’t tried
generating “large” pdf files with PDF::Writer.

In the jsp/java world I had a popup window that would refresh every 5
seconds or so to avoid the timeout issue. I don’t know if ror has a
built-in solution for this.

This might be a trick, but the table I create is certainly not big : 8
columns (and only 4 are dynamic) and 2 rows.
The final pdf file contains half a page.

Have you tried timing how long it takes to create the document in a
command-line mode?

Nope, I am using Rails with Apache and FastCGI, and I am having trouble
with the ‘console’ script.
I will try to fix it tonight and get the timing.
