What is EventMachine?

EventMachine is a library for Ruby, C++, and Java programs. It provides event-driven I/O using the Reactor pattern. EventMachine is designed to simultaneously meet two key needs:

  • Extremely high scalability, performance and stability for the most demanding production environments; and
  • An API that eliminates the complexities of high-performance threaded network programming, allowing engineers to concentrate on their application logic.

This unique combination makes EventMachine a premier choice for designers of critical networked applications, including web servers and proxies, email and IM production systems, authentication/authorization processors, and many more.
