Hi Folks,
I am implementing a multithreaded Network application in Python. As most of you know that the GIL hinders the performance scalablity in SMP machines. I came across POSH. Here they talk about multiple instances of Python Interpreter sticking around a Shared memory , bypassing the GIL effect. Is anybody tried the POSH - does it really increases the performance ?? How good or bad is to have the POSH module imported into ones Python code. Please share your experience, if any, about POSH.
