[erlang-questions] beginner: Help needed - Erts overview and map to subsystem to source
Sun Nov 18 21:42:19 CET 2007
Can someone point me at any documents which describes the internal
architecture of erts? Ideally it would help me navigate the code too.
For example is there a document which gives an overview of erts
subsystems? (ideally also a "table of contents" mapping the
subsystems to the files which contain the corresponding code, but if
the names are consistent, I can use grep.)
While I don't have time right now to work on Erlang DTrace, I think
I'd like to do some preparation by familiarising myself with the erts
I guess I need to find the code for the garbage collector, erts
function tracing (which I would try to use for the DTrace function
call probes), the scheduler, and the module loader/unloader. I'll
also need to discover approximately how they work !-)
I've dug around, and have only spotted:
erts.pdf which don't seem to cover the the areas I think I need.
A pointer would be appreciated.
