C100K and C250K on nodejs

Posted at — Jul 11, 2013

I am somewhat skeptical that they actually managed to get C100K and C250K on an Amazon server. However, I’m very skeptical that they got any real work done on that machine. Partly because of the overhead per connection (up to 4K on some operating systems) but that doing real work has severe ¬†implications for every component in the system. From network IO to disk IO.Making the connections is easy. Doing real work is hard.
