When node.js is the wrong tool for the job

Nice writeup, thanks!

I’m glad to see you resolved the JSON parsing issue via Workers and a separate thread.

Just curious, did you consider using (or test) the Cluster module to leverage the CPUs without having to have separate node processes? In theory, this would have allowed you to have a single cache that all the child processes could utilize.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
