Indeed. One of my students turned up this:
27,000 Concurrent Erlang Poker Games
In the past six weeks, Joel Reymont has rewritten a large part of his
online poker software engine
<http://wagerlabs.com/tech/2005/05/27000-games.html> in Erlang
<http://erlang.org/>, with some impressive results:
I have a PowerBook G4 1.25Ghz with 512Mb of memory. Running 27K
games consumes about 600Mb of memory and takes around 15 minutes per
10K games due to heavy swapping. I gave "top" a cursory look so this
is a probably reason. Each game runs in about 0.02 to 0.07 seconds,
depending on the number of games running.
