Generating Uuid is very slow


#1

Ora,

I have a serious problem about generating identifier. I’m now using Uuid class to obtain ids. But it’s very slow because MAC address is searched for every time id is generated.

I want to request:

  • to cache a MAC address (globally) once it was retrieved or
  • to implement uuid version 3-5.

Thanks,

ioue

Yeah, good point. I recently improved the random number stuff, so I’ll take another look at UUID and clean it up…

Ok, I’ve checked something in for this now…

I got rev 648… Thank you for your prompt response!
