I'm currently use the Agg background, and my graphs

are taking about 2.5 seconds each. I'm primarily using

matplotlib to generate stock ticker graphs and will

generating tens of thousands of graphs throughout the

day.

I read that the SVG was the fastest backend. I tried

it but the speed comes out to be around 4 seconds. The

file size from Agg is about 50k and from SVG is about

400k which might explain why it's taking so long.

I'm using a derivation of the plotDaySummary to do the

charts. the charts are large size 1000x700

I tried psyco but that improved the chart times by

about 7%.

Any and all sugestions would be appreciated. Do you

think rewriting the plot_day_summary with Pyrex would

help?

Thanks,

VJ
