n2o_vnode is an instance of n2o_async prorocess. In N2O number of such instanses is usually equals to the number of cores.
There is two styles of embedding N2O: one is to perform N2O protocol loop inside connection process (as in cowboy version); second is to spawn ring of n2o_async processes and handle all requests inside these processes (as in MQTT version). n2o_vnode is the protocol of such virtual node processes.
On #init/0 n2o_vnode makes connection to MQTT server. On connection established in #mqttc/2 it subscribes to events topic.
After supscription all messages that are being sent to events topic are passed as #publish/2 where n2o_proto:info/3 protocol loop is embedded as handler to that message.
All the results go to actions topic:
Service workers start MQTT clients with following config:
