Scalability of TPL Dataflow Library? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    How scalable is the Dataflow library? For my application, I have two specific cases in mind for when I would need to scale up:

    1. Two separate applications running on the same computer, each one running their own Dataflow network.

    2. Similar to situation 1, but the applications are being run on separate computers that are on the same network.

    For each of these situations, how might I be able to link blocks that are running in separate applications?

    At first thought, it seems like TCP/IP sockets could be used by blocks in separate applications to communicate with each other, but I am wondering if there are better approaches.
