[erlang-questions] stress test with tcp_server
Tue Jun 26 12:57:17 CEST 2007
A while ago I did some performance tests on an erlang TCP application we have developped here.
After adjusting some kernel and erlang parameters, I managed to accept 300.000 TCP connections on one machine (distributed over 6 erlang nodes because each process can only have max. about 65.000 connections). I ran erlang on Sun T1000 hardware with Solaris 10.
