SPUG: Perl Question?

  I have a question regarding perl performance.
I have batch file that executes the same perl
program a few times but with different parameters.
In other words there are different operations
being performed, sql reports are generated from
the database, files are moved around, files are
emailled, etc. This batch runs every 15 minutes
and occasionally there seems to be performance
problems. The thinking was that maybe some of the
perl calls are bumping into each other. For instance
a database call may be taking longer then expected.
Is there a way I can monitor this? When I have
tried to duplicate this it seems that each perl
call isnt made until the previous one finishes,
from the batch file. Am I incorrect here and
there might be other factors at play as far as
why performance issues are occuring? Any tools
available that I can use to monitor each running
perl call? Also since it only happens intermittently
I guess I am going to have to capture a lot of data?

Thanks in advance for your help!!!
