When bad things like network issues or resource exhaustion happen (and they will!), Mjolnir helps you

  • isolate them from the rest of the application/system.
  • shed load from failing downstream dependencies.
  • fail fast back to the caller.

Mjolnir is modeled after Netflix's awesome Hystrix library. Some components are ports, but much of it has been written using C#- and .NET-specific features (e.g. async/await, CancellationTokens).

See the Table of Contents sidebar (on the right) for documentation.
