in reply to High Transaction Data Persistence Requirement across Different Process / Programs
I would suggest doing some reading on IPC (interprocess communication). (see Perl Doc perlipc) There are several immediate options that I can think of at the moment.
1) Use FIFOs (aka named pipes). These are unidirectional so you would need 4 FIFOs (M->A,A->M,M->B,B->M).
2) Use Unix-domain sockets. This will allow bidirectional communication so you will need 2 connections. (M<>A,M<>B)
3) Use TCP sockets. This is probably overkill unless you plan on the processes being on different computers.
Assuming that the 40bytes is 1/message you have a need of about 5000*40=200,000 or 200kB/s. All of the proposed methods should be able to reach that throughput. I have seen benchmarks that suggest that 93mB/s should be obtainable with local TCP sockets. 93mB/s was the lowest benchmark I saw.
Hope this helps.
