Okay, I hope people read this. Send me a note at
email@example.com if you wish to discuss it.
Here is my question. What the hell good are SysV Queues?
The Linux kernel limits them to 16. So you have a software
resource that is limited to 16 instances. That just seems
low. With such a small number of them they are a valuble
resource, how do you decide who can and can't use them?
The logical next question is what the hell good is SysV IPC
at all? Anyone? Anyone? If you want to really ponder this,
what you need to do is architect a system, a complex one,
and use SysV queues for IPC, only then will you have the
true state of mind to enjoy this problem. Former Windows
hacks think they are the logical choice for IPC.
Fortunately you can bump a constant in the kernel and ramp
the max up to 64 or something but that feels like a bandaid
for a bullet wound.
