Subject [jira] [Commented] (MESOS-3526) Transition Windows from libevent to libev
Date Sat, 26 Sep 2015 19:48:05 GMT


Alex Clemmer commented on MESOS-3526:

Actually, it was [~jvanremoortere] who told me that this changes the behavior significantly,
so I'm not the best person to answer this question. That said (in my limited experience) as
I understand it, libevent supports I/O control ports on Windows, which I'm told are much more
performant than the alternatives that libev uses.

Anyway, what we do know for sure is the libevent code path is much less well-exercised, so
we want to offer both code paths for users.

> Right now we have to use libevent to compile Mesos on Windows because libev does not
have a clean standalone build available on Windows. (We also use a beta version of libevent
because it's easier to compile.)
> But, this changes the behavior of libprocess significantly. So, we need to think about
transitioning to libev after MVP.
