Duration for one round of server side module

I implemented a server side perl script using this
http://xymonton.trantor.org/doku.php/tutorials:ssmodule as the template.
I like to run it only once daily, so I put status+1d for the bb command.
But I need help to find out how long it takes for the script to complete for
my ~300 hosts.
Currently I have it setup just like the setup in the above url, like the
CMD hobbitd_channel --channel=client --log=$BBSERVERLOGS/pca.log
And it is taking tons of resources since it receives all the patch/pkg info
from 300 servers through client channel
and generate a patch report using the tool pca (
http://www.par.univie.ac.at/solaris/pca/) for each host. It allows us
to find out the patch status for all solaris boxes
Here is an snippet of the top processes sorted by RSS
PID USERNAME SIZE RSS STATE PRI NICE TIME CPU
8687 hobbit 2248M 581M run 39 0 0:02:31 1.1% hobbitd_channel/1
8648 hobbit 58M 56M run 39 0 0:07:42 2.5% hobbitd/1
10223 hobbit 21M 20M run 20 0 0:00:03 15% perl5.8.5/1
7115 devmon 11M 11M sleep 59 0 0:00:44 1.5% devmon/1
8689 hobbit 8816K 6968K sleep 59 0 0:07:52 2.7% pca.pl/1
If I can find out how long it takes to run I can then add an INTERVAL
accordingly. I do not need to
process the client data more than once a day

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
