windows network scalability?
Thu Apr 15 17:21:50 CEST 2010
I am designing a Windows network application and am having a hard time
getting a sense of erlang network performance on Windows. My app will
establish up to 1000 outgoing SSH connections carrying low volume
interactive traffic. It is a GUI desktop app so when launched, it should
establish all the connections as quickly as possible. My questions are:
- Does Erlang on Windows use select()? I see dire warning about how this is
not scalable, but is it "good enough" for 1000 sockets on a modern PC?
- Does Erlang (or Windows) serialize DNS requests? (I was burned on this
years ago with python/cygwin)
- Any other performance hazards I should worry about?
