Subject Async I/O
Date Mon, 18 Nov 2002 22:58:53 GMT
I have been modifying the Winnt MPM to support IO Completion ports to avoid
client per thread model.
I also refactored mod_echo for testing purposes. I'm almost done but I think
the async i/o is going to introduce all sorts of compatibility problems with
filters that block while reading or writing. But if the modules are aware of
this, this is a workable solution.
I have no problem contributing the code but I think there is some planning
and discussion that need to happen before Apache can move to Async I/O.
Since you guys went through the pain of a new model for modules in 2.0, I
think if the model for async i/o is different, this will cause a lot of
Do you guys see async I/O as a 3.0 feature rather than a 2.0.
