I've been experimenting a bit with Argus/ra, in regards to improving
I noticed that ra (version 22.214.171.124) appears to be quite a lot slower at
reading compressed files than files run through zcat/bzcat/xzcat on the
fly, and I'm wondering if I can feed any options to ra to make it
faster? Or maybe some code-changes (that I haven't got a clue what might
be) could help?
I have created a small graph here that illustrates the problem:
As you can see ra appears to be slower across the board.
