LMAX–’Disruptor’ Framework Open Sourced

Nice to see LMAX has open sourced their general purpose disruptor framework which may be used for exchanging data across concurrent threads, it’s an elegant solution which essentially uses a ring buffer, care around cache alignment, batching and minimising thread locking. LMAX use the disruptor in their order matching engine, their real-time risk management, their in-memory transaction processing system. The white paper explaining the details may be found here. It would be nice to see a .NET port of it!
