[tkined] a question on job creation

Dear all,

I am a newbie in scotty/tkined and tcl. I hope somebody could help me or
give comment on the following.
At the moment I'm writing a script to poll some nodes with many items to
poll, i.e. cpu load, disk load, tcp traffic etc. I take different approach
from that of tkined, where I create a job for each node and item. The
reason is that I'd like to be able to control the jobs easily. For example,
I can stop or modify a particular polling job (to a node) without stopping
others. But, I still wonder how much memory would be needed, especially
when the number of nodes is large.

I hope somebody can comment on my approach and give some rough idea how to
calculate the memory needed for such approach.

One more thing, when I create a job does it mean that I create a new thread

Thank you in advance.
