comment Should I put logging in common shared libraries?
@Snowman I do have a logging framework in mind but I don't want to narrow the question down too much. I'm looking for answers that are broadly applicable for the majority of logging situations. I extended the question a bit to clarify.

comment Why is CPU cache memory so fast?
Hard limit for copper. This is a good point though, I didn't consider how ridiculously fast modern processors are.

@mattnz Good point, I'll ask again over there.

@CharlesE.Grant So is it fair to say that the raw performance of L1 and L2 cache are identical, but are limited by their location on the chip? So this is still a locality issue?

@RobertHarvey Right, but why is it faster, considering they're both on the same chip. Is one still more local somehow?

This makes sense. But now I wonder why L1 cache is still faster than L2 cache even though they're both on the same chip.

@marcocs edited for clarity. I'm referring to CPU cache memory and main system memory, i.e. the removable dimms on most motherboards.
