[erlang-questions] Speed of communication with external processes
Sat Apr 14 00:02:50 CEST 2007
I wrote an Erlang program that uses a local TCP socket (with nodelay)
to communicate with a tiny external program (which I wrote). I was
curious what the turnaround time was on sending data to the external
program and getting back a result, so I wrote a little test function.
Under Windows XP, I'm getting ~3500 round trips per second. I was
surprised at how hight that number was.
Under OS X, I'm getting ~90 round trips per second. 90? Wow, that's
low! I'm sure something is wrong, but I haven't found it yet.
Anyone else ever run tests like this? I'd be curious what kind of
numbers you got.
