The API spec on our website ( should
give you a pretty good idea of what it does.

An 8M Erlang + Linux swapless system is too tight, you'd spend all
your time struggling with memory use. Erlang + VxWorks may be better.
There are some Ericsson groups with Erlang-on-VxWorks experience,
maybe someone can comment. Otherwise, you have to experiment.
