  • dual CPU implications

    by Alex Zakharov,

    Your message is awaiting moderation. Thank you for participating in the discussion.

    Unfortunately the talk never coverd native resource wrappers or multi-CPU situations. Looks like the former is covered reasonably well here

    I'd be very interested in checking out an in-depth discussions/articles on GC behavior on multi CPU machines.
