[mapguide-users] Anyone interested in multi threaded GDAL support?

Hi Zac,

Has the patch I submitted for making the GDAL provider multithreaded been checked in?


I remember at the time the PSC did not allow me to check it in, so I didn't follow up further.

The patch was sufficient to make MapGuide use multiple connections to GDAL. Note that it also included an optimization for repeated schema parsing, which was necessary for the multi-connection case.

Hi Users,

The GDAL support in MapGuide 2.4 is finally stable and robust, however, it's still only single threaded.

Trevor is looking for some sponsorship towards making this multi-threaded which is means you could finally use your multi-core servers to render rasters.


I'm a bit tired of supporting this project and answering endless questions with regards to raster performance problems, when hardly anybody contributes back to the project, so I'm probably going to stop answering questions from anyone who hasn't contributed some funding towards this effort.

Developers have to eat too! am I being too harsh?
