Sample text

Rather than providing threads that share memory, each Erlang process executes in its own memory space and owns its own heap and stack. Processes can’t interfere with each other inadvertently, as is all too easy in threading models, leading to deadlocks and other horrors. Processes communicate with each other via message passing, where the message can be any Erlang data value at all. Message passing is asynchronous, so once a message is sent, the process can continue processing. Messages are retrieved from the process mailbox selectively, so it is not necessary to process messages in the order they are received.

The Erlang DM resulted in a 100% performance increase when compared to the C++ version, which crashed when severely overloaded. Although the throughput might sound surprising at first, it was a result of Erlang and its lightweight concurrency model being the right tool for the task. The mobility application in question had lots of concurrency, short messages, and little in terms of heavy processing and number crunching. The C++ implementation was never implemented to handle the loads it was subjected to, so as a result, the conclusion was that these load results might not be relevant and are certainly unfair to the C++ implementation.

The interesting conclusions of this research came with the pure Erlang implementations. In the DM, there was an 85% reduction in code. This was explained by the fact that 27% of the C++ code consisted of defensive programming, 11% of memory management, and 23% of high-level communication, all features which in Erlang are part of the semantics of the language or are implemented in the OTP libraries. The DCC’s code base was more in line with the folklore and urban legends, namely that it was about 70% smaller than its C++ counterpart.
