NIF based Erlang bindings for the ZeroMQ messaging library.
Copyright (c) 2011 Yurii Rashkovskii, Evax Software and Michael Truog
The erlzmq2 application provides high-performance NIF based Erlang bindings for the ZeroMQ messaging library.
The erlzmq2 source code can be found on GitHub
$ git clone http://github.com/zeromq/erlzmq2.git
Please note that to behave properly on your system ZeroMQ might require some tuning.
Build the code
If you want to build against a specific version of ZeroMQ in the 3.1
v3.1.0), use this:
$ ZEROMQ_VERSION=v<VERSION> make
Be aware that this will almost assuredly not work correctly for any versions of zeromq that are not in the 3.1 series.
Build the docs
$ make docs
Run the test suite
$ make test
$ make bench
This will run performance tests and output png graphs in the graphs directory.
The bindings use Erlang's NIF (native implemented functions) interface to achieve the best performance. One extra OS thread and one pair of inproc sockets by context are used to simulate blocking recv calls without affecting the Erlang virtual machine's responsiveness.
