I'm trying to change how distributed Erlang works.
Currently, all nodes in a distributed Erlang system know about all
other nodes. So for example, if node A knows about B and A knows
about C then B implicitly knows about C. This does not scale to
systems of millions of nodes
What I'd like is the following:
A should be able to do things on B (spawn processes, etc. )
and A should be able to do things on C
I don't want any knowldege of B to leak out to C. I'd also like to
handle multiple cookies etc. ie the coookies needed to authenticate A
against B whould be different from the cookies neede to authenticate A
I also don't want any form of global operations on all nodes in
- has anybody done any work in this direction?
- is what I want possible without perfoming major surgery to
