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].

Then the request is dispatched to the application level for domain-specific logics, which would probably visit the file system for data.

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

References C10k problem, http: Connections exceeding the limitation of the queue will be dropped, but latencies for accepted connections become predictable. Nowadays Apache-MPM prefork still retains the feature for the following reasons. However, it retains much of the stability of a process-based server by keeping multiple processes available, each with many threads. Its concurrency model is based on an event loop.

Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled. Acceptor, selected when a new connection incomes. 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.

Generally, non-blocking solutions are trickier, but they avoid resource contention, which makes it much easier to scale up. Apache-MPM worker takes advantages multiplexer both processes and threads threadpool. Here is a simple implementation with a threadpool for connections: Sign up using Email and Password. Why does reactor pattern come with JavaScript and Node. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.


By using threads to serve requests, wifh is able to serve a large number of requests with fewer system resources than a process-based server.

The reactor pattern is one implementation technique of the event-driven architecture. That’s the usual argument, but: 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.

Yay, it is server-side JavaScript! Some connections may be idle for tens of minutes at a time, but still open. Bad news for us! In this world, if you want your APIs to be popular, you have to make them async and non-blocking. Intuition told me it was manually done by the application developers with threads, but I was wrong. Once finished, the server writes the response to the client, and waits for the next request, or closes the connection.

Actually, there are various ways to do this — different programming languages have their own libraries e. You can also try to build with Netty, a NIO client server framework. A pool of threads poll the queue for incoming requests, and then process and respond.

It looks quite straightforward in JavaScript as shown above, but how is it implemented under the hood? As to C async programing with async and await keywords, that is another story. The dispatcher blocks on the socket for new connections and offers them to the bounded blocking queue.


Processes are too heavyweight with slower context-switching and memory-consuming. I’m reading about Channels multiplexes the JDK 7 docs hereand stumbled upon this: After all, we can still revisit the status or results later.

How to implement an echo ino server with reactor pattern in Java? Also NIO allows for ‘fair’ traffic delivery which is very important and very often overlooked as it ensures stable latency for the clients. In addition, hundreds or even thousands of concurrent threads can waste a great deal of stack space in the memory.

It is appropriate for sites that need to avoid threading for compatibility with non-thread-safe libraries.

Ben Voigt k 29 So that seems a weak argument to me. Think about switching electric current vs. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service. Post as a guest Name. JavaScript has a tradition of being single threaded though it has limited web worker API. Talk is cheap and show me the code: Therefore, the thread-per-connection approach comes into being for better scalability, though programming with threads is error-prone and hard-to-debug.

Email Required, but never shown. It reads and parses the content in the request from the socket CPU bound. Reactor Pattern The reactor pattern is one implementation technique of the event-driven architecture. Also, scheduling thousands of threads is inefficient.
