|Ecosystem:||libraries and apps using rotor|
The mio-based framework for rust for doing I/O in simple and composable way.
The rotor core (this crate) basically consists of:
- An event loop handler (in terms of mio) which turns mio event into event to specific state machine
- A Future type which allows communication between state machines in safe and efficient way
- A simple way to combine multiple libraries (e.g. multiple protocol handlers) into single mio event loop
At the end of the day, rotor is the minimalistic core for making composable libraries on top. It's less than 0.5KLoC.
You are expected to use some higher level abstraction most of the time. For example, you should use stream abstraction (yet to be implemented) for making TCP protocol parser.
Both are rather historical at the moment
- Asynchronous IO in Rust (random design notes about this library)
- Asynchronous IO in Rust (part II)
- Async IO in Rust (part III)
These benchmarks are based on old version of this example. Hopefully we will get updated benchmarks soon.
Just few micro-benchmarks to show that framework has a decent peformance.
The performance on the few years old laptop (i7-3517U CPU @ 1.90GHz):
> wrk -t2 -c 400 http://localhost:8888/ Running 10s test @ http://localhost:8888/ 2 threads and 400 connections Thread Stats Avg Stdev Max +/- Stdev Latency 11.19ms 18.03ms 627.44ms 99.54% Req/Sec 19.66k 1.76k 21.93k 81.00% 391170 requests in 10.01s, 32.83MB read Requests/sec: 39071.42 Transfer/sec: 3.28MB
Performance on newer desktop class CPU (i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz):

Note: both benchmarks are run on single threaded server.
The benchmarks are too early (not a full implementation of HTTP), so no comparison bencmarks listed here.
