Note: the "V3" hint is missing in Subject:

There are still issues:

lwmon:tail: cannot open `1099' for reading: No such file or directory

The alternative to genuflecting before the  god  of  code-bumming  is
finding  a  better  algorithm.  It should be clear that none such was
available. If your code is too slow, you must make it faster.  If  no
better algorithm is available, you must trim cycles.
