    Project mention: Container security best practices: Ultimate guide | | 2021-10-13
  • GitHub repo gRPC

    The Java gRPC implementation. HTTP/2 based RPC

    Project mention: grpc_bench: open-source, objective gRPC benchmark | | 2021-04-20

    Small clarification (to my understanding, I'm not a Java Guru) on why Java got on top - those Java implementations use something called Direct Executor. It's super performant when there's no chance of a blocking operation. But if you are to do anything more than echo service, you might be in trouble. Other implementations probably don't suffer from the same constraint. The related discussion can be found in this PR.

  • GitHub repo uvloop

    Ultra fast asyncio event loop.

    Project mention: Concurrency in Python with FastAPI | | 2021-09-09

    Project mention: Recently zerotier stopped working properly unless I manually set MTU | | 2021-10-13

    I see this issue - - and a response that the default MTU is supposed to be 1432. But like the last person who responded, I'm seeing 2800 in reality.

  • GitHub repo Proxygen

    A collection of C++ HTTP libraries including an easy to use HTTP server.

    Project mention: kleinsHTTP: A stupid stupidly simple HTTP Server | | 2021-08-21

    proxygen claims to support all 3, although I'm still not sure if it's an actual library or just an interface.
