More Disruptor Links…

Martin Fowler has done a great write up on the LMAX Disruptor pattern here, abstract:

LMAX is a new retail financial trading platform. As a result it has to process many trades with low latency. The system is built on the JVM platform and centers on a Business Logic Processor that can handle 6 million orders per second on a single thread. The Business Logic Processor runs entirely in-memory using event sourcing. The Business Logic Processor is surrounded by Disruptors – a concurrency component that implements a network of queues that operate without needing locks. During the design process the team concluded that recent directions in high-performance concurrency models using queues are fundamentally at odds with modern CPU design

The LMAX team has an aggregate blog feed here with some interesting and related posts. There’s a couple of efforts underway to port the disruptor to .NET, though I’ve not found any with perf close to that of LMAX’s implementation.
