Erlang VM News Regarding Dirty Schedulers and I/O
News from the OTP Team - Roadmap

Kenneth Lundin
Head of the Erlang/OTP Team at Ericsson

In this talk we will talk about dirty schedulers, parallel poll sets, and native processes (light). The native processes light is actually an extension to the NIF API which allows a NIF to wait for external I/o events via the enif_select() function. This allows for implementation of I/O handling in NIFs which can replace the need to use drivers and which also has the potential to be more performant.


Kenneth Lundin will share the latest news from the OTP team.


Kenneth Lundin has been working with SW development since the late 70s. As a curiousity it can be mentioned that Kenneth was one of the pioneers in the use of C++ at Ericsson. Unsurprisingly Kenneth's interest for OO languages has been slighty revised since then. He joined the Erlang/OTP project in it's early stages 1996 and has been working both with application components and the runtime system since then. Has been managing the team for about 10 years now.
