[erlang-questions] Erlang Workshop 2007: TCP/IP Connectivity Presentation
Wed Oct 10 16:58:05 CEST 2007
The paper / slides on Optimising TCP/IP connectivity in network
intensive Erlang systems are already online.
*Abstract:* With the increased Use of network enabled applications and
server hosted software systems, scalability with respect to network
connectivity is becoming an increasingly important subject. The
programming language Erlang has previously been shown to be a suitable
choice for creating highly available, scalable and robust telecoms
systems. In this exploratory study we want to investigate how to
optimise an Erlang system for maximum TCP/IP connectivity in terms of
operating system, tuning of the operating system TCP stack and tuning of
the Erlang Runtime System. The study shows how a series of benchmarks
are used to evaluate the impact of these factors and how to evaluate the
best settings for deploying and configuring an Erlang application. We
conclude that the choice of operating system and the use of kernel poll
both have a major impact on the scalability of the benchmarked systems.
The paper and slides on priority messaging and the presentation on
comparing Erlang and C++ from CUFP will be put online tomorrow.
> Thanks to everyone who presented and attended the Erlang Workshop 2007 in
> Freiburg last week. I should update you with what's happening next.
> We hope to put up all the slides from the presentations in the next few
> days, once we have received them all from the presenters; I will post once
> this has happened. All the talks were also videoed, and these should be
> available in due course.
> The papers themselves are available in the ACM Digital Library, since this
> is an ACM SIGPLAN sponsored workshop, but you may well find preliminary
> versions of papers on contributors' websites.
> Kind regards
