[erlang-questions] Optimising TCP/IP connectivity
Wed Jun 13 19:56:40 CEST 2007
I've just finished my bachelor thesis titled "Optimising TCP/IP
connectivity: An exploratory study in network-intensive Erlang systems".
A number of operating systems, VM-options and TCP stack optimisations
have been evaluated to be able to maintain as many concurrent
connections as possible.
The thesis can be found is online at
The paper describes a series of benchmarks on a popular network-intense
Erlang application. During these benchmarks asynchronous threads, kernel
poll and TCP Window Sizes has been evaluated. The same benchmarks has
also been run on several operating systems, on the exact same hardware.
There are some interesting differences, both between he operating
systems and within the same operating system but with other parameters
used to start Erlang.
