Introduction

Gproc was first introduced at the ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop in Freiburg 2007 (Paper available here).

This application was designed to meet the following requirements:

  • A process can register itself using any term. A process can register more than one name A process can publish non-unique {Key,Value} 'properties' The registry must be efficiently searchable
  • As additional features, the registry was designed to allow global registration, and a special {Key,Value} property called a counter. It is also possible to create an 'aggregate counter', which will continuously reflect the sum of all counters with the same name.

    In its current state, the global registration facility is brokenand should not be used. It will be migrated over to a new version of gen_leader. This work will be done with low priority unless peopleexpress a strong urge to use this functionality.
