These are chat archives for akkadotnet/akka.net
I have been asked to write a new bit of software which I think akka.net will fit nicely. I was hoping to chat over the design a little with someone before I completely jump in. Just got a toe in the water just now.
The basic premise is this - we have around 8,000 remote sites that are running windows nt service. This service exposes an api which contains a very lightweight call, lets call it a ping call. I have been tasked with calling all these sites once a minute and recording in a database how long each site took to respond. (possibly a couple of other metrics like dns lookup times etc). Then we can look for patterns and bottlenecks etc.
I am thinking of having an actor system, probably split across a few machines depending on how clogged it gets trying to do 8,000 api calls a minute
