[erlang-questions] Ssl tuning
Fri Apr 13 17:24:43 CEST 2012
We tried some load testing of erlang ssl and have some questions.
The bench is Xeon with 24 cores, otp R15B and modified mochweb server.
Mochiweb acceptor is modified to do gen_tcp:accept, start new acceptor
and call ssl:ssl_accept. Original mochiweb acceptor calls
ssl:transport_accept, ssl:ssl_accept and only then spawns new acceptor.
The server accepts requests and answers 200 immediately.
When load rate reached 1300 rps ssl_connection_sup process began to
accumulate message queue.
I moved all ssl_connection initialization code from init to separate
function, the call to which was triggered by message send from init
(simply delayed init). This way ssl_connection_sup was just spawning
ssl_connection process and sending init message to it.
Ssl_manager process became the new bottleneck. The threshold load rate
According to top all cores had load ~60%.
Any ideas how to tune ssl noninvasively to achieve more results?
