How fast is gRPC? Pretty fast if you understand how modern clients and servers are built. In part 1, I showed how to get an easy 60% improvement. In this post I show how to get a 10000% improvement.
A common question with gRPC is how to make it fast. The gRPC library offers users access to high performance RPCs, but it isn’t always clear how to achieve this. Because this question is common enough I thought I would try to show my thought process when tuning programs.
TL;DR Always set a deadline. This post explains why we recommend being deliberate about setting deadlines, with useful code snippets to show you how.
It’s the start of the new year, and almost the end of my first full year on the gRPC-Go project, so I’d like to take this opportunity to provide an update on the state of gRPC-Go development and give some visibility into how we manage the project. For me, personally, this is the first open source project to which I’ve meaningfully contributed, so this year has been a learning experience for me. Over this year, the team has made constant improvements to our work habits and communication. I still see room for improvement, but I believe we are in a considerably better place than we were a year ago.
