At work, we have a need for a little job daemon that would poll jobs and process them. But there is more than one type of job, so the solution that we need will have to be a little more complex.

I think the results we got so far may surprise you. At lease they don’t seem to be the results +Alex Gorbachev and +Kevin Closson expected to see. You can find the first related blog post here. It will give you the necessary context for further reading. Just to recap: +Kevin Closson says that “Orion may give It’s VERY easy to get huge Orion nums but reasonable SLOB” and +Alex Gorbachev says that “lots of the system IO bound below the CPU level so you should see similar number with Orion or SLOB”. Let’s see what the first results revealed.
