I am not sure I understand your test quite well. Basically you are
connecting and deconnecting very quickly. Is that the case ?
If this is the case, what are you trying to benchmark ?
Most of the time mesuring the TCP/IP throughput implies trying to know
how much data can be processed through a TCP socket, but usually a long
My experience in Erlang, shows that it can handle very well simultaneous
process, so you can have many processs and thus connexion
simultaneously. I did not try to benchmark quick connect/reconnect. From
experience, there might be some performance problem. It looks like a
denial of service for the application.
Does it answer your questions ?
