The tick message is received in dist_util:con_loop/2:


There is a con_loop for each 1:1 node connection, and the tick state simply
keeps track of the number of tick intervals for which no data has been
received on the connection (note that at least ticks should have been

Based on experience, with such a short ticktime, you might want to pay
attention to the +zdbbl setting for erl (dist_buf_busy_limit). If it is set
too low, there is a risk that the ticker process is suspended and the
connection times out. I believe this is less of a problem than it used to
be, when the distribution buffer busy limit was much lower (and not
