The Node is the name of the node and the ControllingEntity is the port or pid responsible for the communication to that node. The InfoTuple s part of the result can be changed without prior notice. The normal reaction to take when this occurs is some kind of premature shutdown of the other node. Stops the execution of the calling process with an exception of the specified class, reason, and call stack backtrace stacktrace. The shell is not usually invoked to start the program, it’s executed directly. The applied function must be exported from Module.

This might, for example, happen if a high priority process triggers code loading, since the code server runs on priority normal. Returns the pid of the group leader for the process which evaluates the function.

BinInfo is a list containing miscellaneous information about binaries currently being referred to by this process. This is a monotonically erlanv time since some unspecified point in time.

Returns a term from the driver. When the emulator is run with instrumentation, the system value is more accurate, but memory directly allocated by malloc and friends are still not part of the system value.

15 Ports and Port Drivers

Returns a list of Erlang modules which are pre-loaded in the system. Field Arity in the first tuple can be the argument list of that function call instead of an arity integer, depending on the exception.


;ort tried from within Erlang shell after I killed port’s process–just returns ok. All times are in milliseconds. Returns the N th element numbering from 1 of Tuple. Returns disabledblockedor enabled. A process can also call the function exit Pid,Reason. Computes an MD5 message digest from Datawhere the length of the digest is bits 16 bytes.

Returns potr string corresponding to the text representation of Integer in base Basefor example:. Returns the atom whose text representation is Stringbut only if there already exists such atom.

If the connection to it is lost, we do not know if it still exists. When runnable processes on priority high exist, no processes on pport low or normal are selected for execution. Decodes the binary Bin according to the packet protocol specified by Type.

A suspended process is not scheduled for execution until the process has been resumed. Returns the process identifier of a new process started by the application of Fun to the empty list [].

CatchLevel is the number of currently active catches in this process.

After the operation, there are three binaries altogether. The sequential trace token is propagated as usual, but no sequential trace messages are generated.

Erlang — Processes

The N th element of the tuple equals the current binding for the scheduler with the scheduler identifier equal to N. This information is highly implementation dependent, and may change if the implementation change. If you know that the Tracee has passed some specific point in its execution, and you want to edlang when at least all trace messages corresponding to events up to this point have reached the tracer you can use erlang: Busy looping for long periods in a high priority process causes most likely problems, as important Oort servers run on priority normal.


The following elements are always present in the list for both local and external funs:. That is, NUMA nodes can be processor internal or processor external.

Primer on Ports

Status must be a non-negative integer, or a string. So, we’d better give it something to compile. The allowed range is For integer Status opej, the Erlang runtime system closes all ports and allows async threads to finish their operations before exiting. That is, one and only one scheduler thread will execute.
