[erlang-questions] gen_server mailbox scans
Wed Jan 14 17:03:17 CET 2009
The issue of excessive mailbox scanning during the bottom half of a
gen_server call has been brought up at various stages on this list.
The issue has become of some concern to us, so we have patched the
gen_server implementation from R11B5 to drain the mailbox in the loop.
It seems to do the job but I just wanted to get some feedback from
more knowledgable people before this functionality is merged into our
main source tree.
The patched version is available here:
Any remarks or help is appreciated,
