Building Highly Scalable Servers with Java NIO (4 messages) Developing a fully functional router based on I/O multiplexing was not simple. : Building Highly Scalable Servers with Java NIO multiplexing is significantly harder to understand and to implement correctly. use the NIO API (ByteBu ers, non-blocking I/O) The classical I/O API is very easy Java NIO Framework was started after Ron Hitchen’s presentation How to Build a Scalable Multiplexed Server With NIO at the JavaOne Conference [26].

It is appropriate for sites that need to avoid threading for compatibility with non-thread-safe libraries. Email Required, but never shown. In addition, hundreds or even thousands of multiplexee threads can waste a great sxalable of stack space in the memory. Generally, non-blocking solutions are trickier, but they avoid resource contention, which makes it much easier to scale up.

It is also the best MPM for isolating each request, so that a problem with a single request will not affect any other. I’m reading about Channels in the JDK 7 docs hereand stumbled upon this:. Louis Wasserman k 20 However, the isolation and thread-safety come at a price.

You’re right I only tested bandwidth more important for my problems and I don’t think I’ve seen anything about latency so far.

Actually, there are various ways to do this — different programming languages have their own libraries e.


Bad news for us! Voo, I doubt you do have tens of thousands Runnable not just idling threads. The threads are doing some rather heavyweight work, so we reach the capacity of a single server before context switching overheads get a problem.

We should exhaust them! Connections exceeding the limitation of the queue will be dropped, but latencies for accepted connections become predictable. Sign up using Email and Password. Intuition told me it was manually done by the application developers with threads, but I was wrong. A pool of threads poll the queue for incoming requests, and then process and respond. Nowadays Apache-MPM prefork still retains the feature for the following reasons.

Also NIO allows for ‘fair’ traffic delivery which is very important and very often overlooked as it ensures stable latency for the clients. Yay, it is server-side JavaScript! Mads Nielsen 3 Some connections may be idle for tens of minutes at a time, but still open. This pattern decouples modular application-level code from reusable reactor implementation. And the operating systems themselves also provide system calls in the kernel level — e.

The answer may be as simple as just one single word — tradition. Therefore, the thread-per-connection approach comes into being for better scalability, though programming ssrver threads is error-prone and hard-to-debug. References C10k problem, http: Here comes the question – why it is JavaScript with powerful Node.

The dispatcher blocks on the socket for new connections and offers them to the bounded blocking queue. JavaScript has a tradition of being single threaded though it has limited web worker API. Reactor Pattern The reactor pattern is one implementation technique of the event-driven architecture. Unfortunately, there is always a one-to-one relationship between connections and threads.


Long-living connections like Keep-Alive connections give rise to a large number of worker threads waiting in the idle state for whatever it is slow, e. So that seems a weak argument to me. It reads and parses the content in the request from the socket CPU bound. Then the request is dispatched to the application level for domain-specific logics, which would probably visit the file system for data.

As to C async programing with async and await keywords, that is another story. After accepting the incoming request, the server establishes a TCP connection. Ben Voigt k 29 That’s the usual argument, but: How to implement an echo web server with reactor pattern in Java?

Think about switching electric current vs. Why does reactor pattern come with JavaScript and Node.

Understanding Reactor Pattern for Highly Scalable I/O Bound Web Server

To answer these questions, let us first look at how an Seerver request is handled in general. Post as a guest Name. Acceptor, selected when a new connection incomes. In terms of processing the request, a threadpool is still used.
