ARGON node diagram (by )

Since I'm always rethinking parts of it faster than I can write them up, ARGON lurks to a great extent inside my own head, with the Web site lagging behind a little. This just helps to make it all the more confusing for interested folks, so I've bitten the bullet and produced a shoddy diagram showing how all the services can fit together on a single running node.

Here, we see how the HYDROGEN hardware abstraction layer is used by various components to support WOLFRAM, for in-cluster management of shared state; MERCURY, for inter-cluster and in-cluster communication and FLUORINE for interoperability with other network protocols. These act as interfaces to the entity handler user code - your application - invoking your entities to handle incoming network requests, and providing an API for your code to make outgoing network requests.

I've shown how real-time user tasks will be executed by the HELIUM scheduler in response to timers or incoming signals, and how they interact with local hardware to perform their work.

And I've shown how the NEON user interface subsystem uses the human interface hardware APIs provided by HYDROGEN to proxy between the user and the CARBON directory (for browsing) and MERCURY to then interact with entities to request that they provide code for a user interface front end, which is then executed locally by CHROME in order to provide a responsive user experience for accessing remote resources.

Hopefully, this will make my rantings make a lot more sense to people...
