  • Parallel Erlang – Speed beyond Concurrency
    2013-06-13 Erlang Central

    Videos



    One of the highlighted features of Erlang/OTP R15B02, released on September 2012, was a parallel version of Dialyzer, the standard static analysis tool for Erlang developers, which is now shown to scale almost linearly at least up to twelve cores. Together with other improvements also included in that release, the parallel Dialyzer is able to analyze the entire Erlang/OTP codebase in just 6 minutes. In this talk I will describe the patterns that were used to parallelize this sequential tool and ...

  • Scalable ETS: Does Such a Thing Exist?
    2013-06-13 Erlang Central

    Presentations Videos



    Erlang Term Storage (ETS) is Erlang's own in-memory database system, which is used by many to store shared data in parallel applications. Using ETS concurrently is a challenge, and even the Erlang/OTP R14B release notes claim that certain uses of it ""will never scale"". How to do it in a way that might work, and how much truth there is in this claim will be topics in this talk. Understanding the effects of ETS concurrency options, and how they reflect in the underlying implementation is requi ...

  • Erlang in Embedded Systems
    2010-06-07 Erlang Central

    Videos

    Erlang holds great potential for use in Embedded devices. The distributed and fault-tolerant nature of Erlang has many uses in embedded systems, and yet there is not much available for the enthusiastic Erlang developer who wishes to run his Erlang applications on embedded devices. This talk will discuss the potential of a Linux-based Embedded Platform developed with the focus on running a minimal Erlang/OTP system. An Erlang-based model for mobile data-oriented networks for use in embedded syste ...
