Subject Re: Can serialization be disabled between chains?
Date Mon, 16 Jan 2017 13:07:05 GMT
Hey Dmitry,

this is not possible if I'm understanding you correctly.

A task chain is executed by a single task thread and hence it is not
possible to continue processing before the record "leaves" the thread,
which only happens when the next task thread or the network stack
consumes it.

Hand over between chained tasks happens without serialization. Only
data between different task threads is serialized.

Depending on your use case the newly introduced async I/O feature
might be worth a look (will be part of the upcoming 1.2 release):
