.NET Standard, high performance, zero allocation AIS decoder, which can process millions of AIVDM/AIVDO sentences per second on a single core. Documentation is available at https://ais-dotnet.github.io/Ais.Net/
Supported Message Types
This library has been developed to support specific applications, so it only supports message types that have been needed to date in those applications. The following message types are currently supported.
|1, 2, 3||Position Report Class A|
|5||Static Voyage Related Data|
|18||Standard Class B CS Position Report|
|19||Extended Class B CS Position Report|
|24||Static Data Report|
|27||Long Range AIS Broadcast message|
See https://gpsd.gitlab.io/gpsd/AIVDM.html for a complete list of message types.
The benchmark suite is a work in progress, but it currently measures two basic scenarios: discovering message types, and extracting position data. Here are the results of executing these benchmarks on a system with an Intel Core i9-9900K CPU 3.60GHz CPU:
| Method | Mean | Error | StdDev | Gen 0 | Gen 1 | Gen 2 | Allocated | |------------------------------------ |---------:|---------:|---------:|----------:|------:|------:|----------:| | InspectMessageTypesFromNorwayFile1M | 347.5 ms | 3.960 ms | 3.704 ms | 1000.0000 | - | - | 3.57 KB | | ReadPositionsFromNorwayFile1M | 403.5 ms | 5.395 ms | 5.046 ms | 1000.0000 | - | - | 3.57 KB |
The test processes 1 million messages, so to get the per-message timings, we divide by 1 million (so
ms in this table indicate ns per message). This demonstrates a per-message cost of 404ns to extract the
position data, or 348ns just to inspect the message type. Note that these tests read data from a file, so
this includes all the IO overhead involved in getting hold of the data to be processed. (These messages are
in NMEA format by the way.)
Note that the
1000.0000 Gen 0 GCs is slightly misleading. BenchmarkDotNet reports the number of GCs per
1,000 executions of the benchmark. But in this case the benchmarks take long enough that it only executes
them once each per iteration. The number it shows is the number of GCs multiplied by 1,000, then divided by
the number of times it executed the benchmark (i.e. 1), so what this actually shows is that there was a single GC. We seem to see this whether we parse 1,000, 1,000,000, or 10,000,000 messages, so although we're
not quite sure why we get an GC at all, the important point here is that the memory overhead is fixed, no
matter how many messages you process.
