I’m writing a load balanced server system in Go.
The load balancing server will communicate with several application servers and process requests. These servers can both, be running on the same machine or on the network.
I already figured the networking out but now I need to find an optimal way for the load-balancer to communicate with a local application server. Using
localhost-networking seems far from optimal.
I’m trying to share memory via the
shmat system-calls but haven’t found any working examples and the
syscall package is also completely undocumented.
Can someone provide me with an example of how to use these calls or a realistic alternative that works on Go for doing IPC?
