SubjectRe: FYI: PoC: Running 100000 processes in 5.3.18 (SLES15 SP2)

Okay, well. So you have kind of N^2 task, new processes need time and
all the all processes are already eating CPU... You are getting 55
processes per second, and that's not exactly good result.

I'm seething these even without trying to overload the machine.
