[tao-users] Reliability of the dev_poll Reactor Type

Hi all,

By default TAO uses the Select Reactor. On Unix/Linux platforms the 
select() API cannot cope with situations where a process opens more than 
1024 file descriptors. This is a known issue, and with the advanced 
resource factory option "-ORBReactorType dev_poll" TAO can be configured 
to use the alternative ACE_Dev_Poll_Reactor, which does not have the 
same issue.

The documentation still describes this option as experimental. The last 
discussion I can find is from 2011/2012:


How reliable is it? Are people using dev_poll?
