Abstract

Massively multiplayer online games have to handle huge amounts of load caused by thousands of concurrent players and require a scalable, low-latency middleware system for their messaging needs. In this demonstration we will showcase the three pub/sub network designs that we developed for our Middleware 2014 paper titled "Publish/Subscribe Network Designs for Multiplayer Games". The demonstration will use the MMOG prototype Mammoth and the PADRES distributed pub/sub system to compare the performance and features of the network engines in real-time.
