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].

Building Highly Scalable Servers with Java NIO (O’Reilly) []

Voo, I doubt you do have tens of thousands Runnable not just idling threads. Processes are too heavyweight with slower context-switching and memory-consuming. However, the isolation and thread-safety come at a price. However, it retains much of the stability of a process-based server by keeping multiple processes available, each with many threads.

Then the request is dispatched to the application level for domain-specific logics, which would probably visit the file system for data. Post as a guest Name. That’s the usual argument, but: Mads Nielsen 3 Non-blocking avoids this sort of thing. That said, the point of Channel is to make this less tricky.

In addition, hundreds or even thousands of concurrent threads can waste a great deal of stack space in the memory.

Apache-MPM worker takes advantages of both processes and threads threadpool. Reactor Pattern The reactor pattern is one implementation technique of the event-driven architecture.

In the following code, a single boss thread is in an event loop blocking on a selector, which is registered with several channels and handlers. This pattern decouples modular application-level code from reusable reactor implementation.


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

Its concurrency model is based on an event loop. Email Required, multiplexef never shown. By using threads wirh serve requests, it is able to serve a large number of requests with fewer system resources than a process-based server. I can run tens of thousands of threads on my desktop machine, but I’ve yet to see any problem where I could actually serve tens of thousands of connections from a single machine without everything crawling to a halt.

Here is a simple implementation with a threadpool for connections: You can also try to build with Netty, a NIO client server framework.

Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled.

Here comes the question – why it is JavaScript with powerful Node. It reads and parses the content in the request from the socket CPU bound.

Talk is cheap and show me the code: I’m reading about Builx in the JDK 7 docs hereand stumbled upon this: And the operating systems themselves also provide system calls in the kernel level — e.

Actually, there are various ways to do this — different programming languages have their own libraries e. Post Your Answer Discard By clicking “Post Your Answer”, you acknowledge that you have read our updated terms of serviceprivacy policy and cookie policyand that your continued use of the website is subject to these policies. Also, scheduling thousands of threads is inefficient. It is also the best MPM for isolating each request, so that a problem with multiplxed single request will not affect any other.


References C10k problem, http: The reactor pattern is one implementation technique of the event-driven architecture. In terms of processing the request, a threadpool is still used. Bad news for us!

Ben Voigt k 29 Some connections may be idle for tens of minutes at a time, but still open. Intuition told me it was manually done by the application developers with threads, but I was wrong. So that seems a weak argument to me.

JavaScript has a tradition of being single threaded though it has limited web worker API. Nowadays Byild prefork still retains the feature for the following reasons. Once finished, the server writes the response to the client, and waits for the next request, or closes the connection.

I’m reading about Channels in the JDK 7 docs hereand stumbled upon this:. It is appropriate for sites that need to avoid threading for multipelxed with non-thread-safe libraries. Also NIO allows for ‘fair’ traffic delivery which is very important and very often overlooked as it ensures stable latency for the clients.

How to implement an echo web server with reactor pattern in Java?
