global:set_lock/1 vs gen_leader & gen_paxos
Tue Sep 1 14:04:24 CEST 2009
Suppose I need a single node (process) in a cluster to write to a file
on Amazon S3. I don't care which node does it since all I'm doing is
writing a list of nodes to the file.
I could try to elect a leader with gen_leader or come to consensus
with gen_paxos. What are the drawbacks of using global:set_lock/1
fastest mac firefox!
