I’ve never had a project where a server process took more than a few milliseconds, and now after researching patterns to accomplish this, my head is spinning & even though this topic is covered in other non-meteor specific communities, I’d like to hear from the one I trust
I’ve got to solve an NP-hard problem & my thought is to let it run for 15 minutes & grab the best solution after the time limit is reached (I’ll run this about 20 times / client / year).
If I were to host this on my own, what’s the general pattern? Passing this onto my event loop would hang the server for 15 minutes, right? So what’s the alternative?
If I wrote this in Julia, I’d probably use some hosted service like http://forio.com/products/epicenter/. Any experience or thoughts on this approach/vendor?
Any packages that make this easier? I imagine if I call an external server I could just change a
Sessionvar in the callback & that would update my template, but I don’t know what I don’t know…
Don’t be bashful, any thoughts or opinions welcome!
