gen_server:start - performance

Hmm, after doing some measurements, I've found that
spawning processes with gen_server:start and stopping
them takes several times much time that with spawn.

The only way to get around this was to leave some processes alive, 
cleaning their status, but not stopping them.

I need rate of about 2500 proc/second starting for a some time range - 
say bursts 10 seconds long with such spawn rate
