Sun StorageTek 5800 System Client API Reference Manual

Performance and Scalability

The 5800 system C client library provides high performance and is highly scalable.

The synchronous C API performs its own calls to select() internally.

For the nonblocking C API (not yet implemented), access is provided to the underlying fd_set so that all pending I/O operations can be serviced by a single thread on the basis of status returned by the POSIX select() function, possibly after merging the 5800 system fd_set with some external, application-specific fd_set.
