As far as the my talk went, I was talking about the Percept2 tool that's being built by Huiqing Li and me to profile Erlang systems, particularly those being deployed on multicore. This work is part of the RELEASE project, funded by the European Commission. In RELEASE we're in the process of developing Erlang to be used in a scalable way in distributed heterogenous multicore systems.
This is the first time I've talked about this, and we got a set of very good questions from the audience:
- how scalable is what you do?
- can you attach / detach Percept2 to/from a running system?
- how is migration between schedulers related to the degree of parallelism within a system? …cool research question!
Now time to listen to Ian Barber from Google on linking Google APIs and Erlang …
