Process Bottlenecks in Erlang Web Apps

In my “Functional Web” March/April 2011 column (PDF), I explore potential process bottleneck problems within Erlang web applications, specifically around the issue of process fan-in. I’ve seen developers create Erlang web applications that suffer from bottlenecks related to interprocess communication as explained in the column, yet as far as I’ve seen this issue is rarely if ever discussed among Erlang developers.

As always, all constructive feedback on the column is welcomed. Just post your comments here or email me.
