isolated-threads - NodeJS real threads with shared memory

  •        1

Since the different thread is executed in an isolated instance of v8, you will not be able to use Buffer or require and you will not have access to any kind of event loop functions, like setTimeout or setInterval. When you are passing data between isolates, the data is serialized and copied between threads (read more here). If you with to copy a large amount of data, you should use Typed Arrays (like UInt8Array or Float64Array) with a SharedArrayBuffer backend (if available). In the above example we allocate a w * h * c sized shared buffer, and then use it as a backend for Uint8Array. We do all data manipulation using the uint8 array and then return back the shared one. Upon receiving the shared array from the thread, we reinterpret it into a uint8 array and extract our data.

  •    Java

An demonstration of Volley - HTTP library announced by google in I/O 2013. Android has provided two HTTP Clients AndroidHttpClient (Extended from apache HTTPClient) and HttpUrlConnection to make a HTTP Request. Both has its own pros and cons. When an application is developed, we write HTTP connection classes which handles all the HTTP requests, creating THREADS to run in background, managing THREAD pool, response parsing, response caching, handling error codes, SSL connections, running requests in parallel and others stuffs around that. Every developer has his own way of implementing these functionalities.Some might use AsycnTask for running network operations in background, or some might use passing handlers created from UI thread to HTTP connection classes which then executes network operation in worker thread and uses the handler to pass back the parsed HTTP response back to the main thread.

learnrxjava - A set of exercises to designed to teach developers Rx (Reactive Streams)

  •    Java

A sequential program runs on a flat timeline. Each task is only started after the previous one completes. In concurrent programs, multiple tasks may be running during the same time period and a new task may begin at any time. In threaded programs, introducing concurrency trades space for time. Allocating memory for more threads allows application servers to make network requests concurrently instead of sequentially. Threaded network requests can dramatically reduce server response times, but like all trade-offs this approach has its limits. Unchecked thread creation can cause a server to run out of memory or to spend too much time to context switching. Thread pools can help manage these problems, but under heavy load the number of threads in an application server’s pool will eventually be exhausted. When this happens network requests will be serialized, causing response times to rise. At this point the only way to bring down response times again is to scale up more servers, which increases costs.

Javascript thread library. Uses web workers when run in browsers and child processes when run by node.js. Also supports browsers which do not support web workers.You don't have to write the thread's code inline. The file is expected to be a commonjs module (so something that uses module.exports = ...), for node and browser.

Advanced multi-threaded PostgreSQL connection pooler and request router. Odyssey can significantly scale processing performance by specifying a number of additional worker threads. Each worker thread is responsible for authentication and proxying client-to-server and server-to-client requests. All worker threads are sharing global server connection pools. Multi-threaded design plays important role in SSL/TLS performance.

puma - A Ruby/Rack web server built for concurrency

  •    Ruby

Puma is a simple, fast, threaded, and highly concurrent HTTP 1.1 server for Ruby/Rack applications in development and production. Under the hood, Puma processes requests using a C-optimized Ragel extension (inherited from Mongrel) that provides fast, accurate HTTP 1.1 protocol parsing in a portable way. Puma then serves the request in a thread from an internal thread pool. Since each request is served in a separate thread, truly concurrent Ruby implementations (JRuby, Rubinius) will use all available CPU cores.

PINRemoteImage - A thread safe, performant, feature rich image fetcher

  •    Objective-C

PINRemoteImageManager is an image downloading, processing and caching manager. It uses the concept of download and processing tasks to ensure that even if multiple calls to download or process an image are made, it only occurs one time (unless an item is no longer in the cache). PINRemoteImageManager is backed by GCD and safe to access from multiple threads simultaneously. It ensures that images are decoded off the main thread so that animation performance isn't affected. None of its exposed methods allow for synchronous access. However, it is optimized to call completions on the calling thread if an item is in its memory cache. PINRemoteImage supports downloading many types of files. It, of course, supports both PNGs and JPGs. It also supports decoding WebP images if Google's library is available. It even supports GIFs via returning FLAnimatedImages if it's compiled in (though this can be disabled).
