We propose a programming model for scalable distributed applications. Our programming model aims at applications which have to handle a high number of concurrent network connections in parallel. Such load characteristics appear in Web 2.0 applications and in scientific network simulators. The problem originates at the I/O API provided by the operating system. Blocking I/O is easy to use, but in large scale scenarios the usage of threads and memory is excessive. Non-blocking I/O can… CONTINUE READING
