My previous post promised a follow up to explain how network IO events are handled by HawtDispatch. Before I get into the details, I urge you to read Mark McGranaghan’s post on Threaded vs Evented Servers. He does an excellent job describing how event driven servers scale in comparison to threaded servers. This post will try to highlight how HawtDispatch provides an excellent framework for the implementation of event based servers.
