Subject Re: Write slow or OOM?
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2008 09:10:54 GMT
Thank you very much.

1) I used Mina1.1.5 NOT 2.0 M1.
2) Actually telnet client is on the same machine as my Mina server. Could it
be SLOW?

In order to test how fast Mina could write, I modified the
ReverseProtocolHandler example. I added following code in the

public void sessionCreated(IoSession session) throws Exception {
     String message =

     while (true) {
      for (int i = 0; i < 5000; i++)


and I opened a telnet client connect to it. However, when I PrintGCDetails,
i obversed that GC is so busy to collect (take 0.15 sec to collect once, and
keep collecting )and after a while it seems too slow to collect. Eventually

I don't know if my code added was correct or NOT. I was impressed when you
said your server could handle 140k message/sec. How could you possible do
that? ^^
