NAME ^

AnyEvent::ForkManager - A simple parallel processing fork manager with AnyEvent

VERSION ^

This document describes AnyEvent::ForkManager version 0.04.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use AnyEvent;
    use AnyEvent::ForkManager;
    use List::Util qw/shuffle/;

    my $MAX_WORKERS = 10;
    my $pm = AnyEvent::ForkManager->new(max_workers => $MAX_WORKERS);

    $pm->on_start(sub {
        my($pm, $pid, $sec) = @_;
        printf "start sleep %2d sec.\n", $sec;
    });
    $pm->on_finish(sub {
        my($pm, $pid, $status, $sec) = @_;
        printf "end   sleep %2d sec.\n", $sec;
    });

    my @sleep_time = shuffle(1 .. 20);
    foreach my $sec (@sleep_time) {
        $pm->start(
            cb => sub {
                my($pm, $sec) = @_;
                sleep $sec;
            },
            args => [$sec]
        );
    }

    my $cv = AnyEvent->condvar;

    # wait with non-blocking
    $pm->wait_all_children(
        cb => sub {
            my($pm) = @_;
            print "end task!\n";
            $cv->send;
        },
    );

    $cv->recv;

DESCRIPTION ^

AnyEvent::ForkManager is much like Parallel::ForkManager, but supports non-blocking interface with AnyEvent.

Parallel::ForkManager is useful but, it is difficult to use in conjunction with AnyEvent. Because Parallel::ForkManager's some methods are blocking the event loop of the AnyEvent.

You can accomplish the same goals without adversely affecting the Parallel::ForkManager to AnyEvent::ForkManager with AnyEvent. Because AnyEvent::ForkManager's methods are non-blocking the event loop of the AnyEvent.

INTERFACE ^

Methods

new

This is constructor.

max_workers

max parallel forking count. (default: 10)

on_start

started child process callback.

on_finish

finished child process callback.

on_error

fork error callback.

on_enqueue

If push to start up child process queue, this callback is called.

on_dequeue

If shift from start up child process queue, this callback is called.

on_working_max

If request to start up child process and process count equal max process count, this callback is called.

Example

  my $pm = AnyEvent::ForkManager->new(
      max_workers => 2,   ## default 10
      on_finish => sub {  ## optional
          my($pid, $status, @anyargs) = @_;
          ## this callback call when finished child process.(like AnyEvent->child)
      },
      on_error => sub {   ## optional
          my($pm, @anyargs) = @_;
          ## this callback call when fork failed.
      },
  );

start

start child process.

args

arguments passed to the callback function of the child process.

cb

run on child process callback.

Example

  $pm->start(
      cb => sub {   ## optional
          my($pm, $job_id) = @_;
          ## this callback call in child process.
      },
      args => [$job_id],## this arguments passed to the callback function
  );

wait_all_children

You can call this method to wait for all the processes which have been forked. This can wait with blocking or wait with non-blocking in event loop of AnyEvent. feature to wait with blocking is ALPHA quality till the version hits v1.0.0. Things might be broken.

blocking

If this parameter is true, blocking wait enable. (default: false) feature to wait with blocking is ALPHA quality till the version hits v1.0.0. Things might be broken.

cb

finished all the processes callback.

Example

  $pm->wait_all_children(
      cb => sub {   ## optional
          my($pm) = @_;
          ## this callback call when finished all child process.
      },
  );

signal_all_children

Sends signal to all worker processes. Only usable from manager process.

on_error

As a new method's argument.

on_start

As a new method's argument.

on_finish

As a new method's argument.

on_enqueue

As a new method's argument.

on_dequeue

As a new method's argument.

on_working_max

As a new method's argument.
