Technical Updates

Chronicle Ring provides a high performance, multi-writer, multi-reader, zero garbage collection monitored ring buffer implementation which can be simply added to your Chronicle Queue (Enterprise and Open Source) code. The addition of Chronicle Ring can reduce outlier latencies by a factor of 200 in the example below we reduced 99.99% (one in a 1000 messages) from 2.5 milliseconds to 5 microseconds and improved latencies across the benchmark Chronicle Queue, 250K msgs/sec of 32 bytes

We use JLBH to send a sustained number of 32-byte messages per second which are timestamped then written into a Chronicle Queue , the below charts show 8 runs of 100sec each and each run writes ~800MB

.8 runs of 100sec each and each run writes ~800MB
