kqueue is preferred on *BSD, since it's able to aggregate multiple filter matches into one event if they happen to occur in a close time frame. This reduces copyout from kernel to userland. It also used to be true that poll is a busywait, but I think that has been corrected. If you're interested, the original design document for kqueue is available here: http://people.freebsd.org/~jlemon/papers/kqueue.pdf -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
