Multiple Instances Wiki Entry

I just added some comments to the MultipleInstances entry in the Wiki. I’m
not sure who originally wrote it, but it should probably be checked and
incorporated.

It also needs to be updated for 3.4.

On the other hand, is there a reason we couldn’t get the patches added to
the base distrib? Other than a sub millisecond delay at startup, I don’t
believe they have any impact on a system with just a single RT3
instantiation.

I wrote it, but it’s a wiki, so I don’t own it.

Thanks for the addition. I think you’re right about the
change, although the bad consequences of my code are
very minor.

It also needs to be updated for 3.4.

Heh. I haven’t had a chance to install 3.4 yet.
At least from 3.0.6 -> 3.2.0 there have been essentially
no changes to this patch. When I do check out 3.4.0,
I’ll incorporate your changes.

I think I did submit them, and agree there would be no performance
hit on systems that didn’t need them. OTOH, I’m not complaining,
since I get a lot more out of RT than I pay for. And so far,
these patches have been trivial to add into new versions.
Maybe if I have to rework them for 3.4, I’ll resubmit them
in case they would be useful. (Certainly I’ll change the wiki
unless you get there first :slight_smile:
