The pooled-io package

[ Tags: bsd3, library, parallelism ] [ Propose Tags ]

The motivation for this package was to run computations on multiple cores that need to write intermediate results to disk. The functions restrict the number of simultaneously running jobs to a user given number or to the number of capabilities the Haskell program was started with, i.e. the number after the RTS option -N.

There are some flavors of this functionality:

Additionally there is the module Control.Concurrent.PooledIO.Sequence that helps to serialize I/O actions from multiple threads. It is certainly most useful in connection with Control.Concurrent.PooledIO.Independent.
