Performance and characteristics
Unfortunately, there has not been that many performance evaluations done
on Erlang/OTP yet. We are working on this.
- Speed test of new inet driver.
In release R7, a new inet driver was introduced. The inet driver
handles the TCP/IP and UDP/IP protocols. With the new driver one
intermediate Erlang process per open socket was removed which
increased throughput up to 3 times in some cases.
