This is a port of the LMAX Disruptor into the Go programming language. It retains the essence and spirit of the Disruptor and utilizes a lot of the same abstractions and concepts, but does not maintain the same API.On my MacBook Pro (Intel Core i7-4960HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz) using Go 1.4.2, I was able to push over 900 million messages per second (yes, you read that right) from one goroutine to another goroutine. The message being transferred between the two CPU cores was a simple, incrementing number, but literally could be anything. Note that your mileage may vary and that different operating systems can introduce significant “jitter” into the application by taking control of the CPU and invalidating the various CPU caches. Linux and Windows have the ability to assign a given process to specific CPU cores which reduces jitter significantly by keeping all the CPU caches hot. Parenthetically, when the Disruptor code is compiled and run on a Nexus 5, it can push about 15-20 million messages per second.
