NAME ^

Cache::Isolator - transaction and concurrency manager of cache systems.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Cache::Isolator;
  use Cache::Memcached::Fast;

  my $isolator = Cache::Isolator->new(
      cache => Cache::Memcached::Fast->new(...),
      concurrency => 4,
  );

  my $key   = 'query:XXXXXX';
  $isolator->get_or_set(
      $key, 
      sub { # This callback invoked when miss cache
          get_from_db($key);
      },
      3600
  );

DESCRIPTION ^

Cache::Isolator is transaction and concurrency manager of cache systems. Many cache systems have Thundering Herd problem. If a cache has expired, concentration of access to the database may happen. This will cause a system failure. Cache::Isolator can control the concentration of load.

METHODS ^

new( %args )

Following parameters are recognized.

cache

Required. Cache::Memcached::Fast object or similar interface object.

concurrency

Optional. Number of get_or_set callback executed in parallel. If many process need to run callback, they wait until lock becomes released or able to get values. Defaults to 1. It means no concurrency.

interval

Optional. The seconds for busy loop interval. Defaults to 0.01 seconds.

trial

Optional. When the value is being set zero, get_or_set will be waiting until lock becomes released. When the value is being set positive integer value, get_or_set will die on reached trial count. Defaults to 0.

timeout

Optional. The seconds until lock becomes released. Defaults to 30 seconds.

early_expires_ratio

Optional. if early_expires_ratio was set to greater than zero, Cache::Isolator stores to duplicate the cache. One of them is set to expire earlier than normal. Cache::Isolator gets the cache has been set to expire early in the specified percentage. This feature can prevent the cache from disappearing all together. Defaults is "0".

  my $cache = Cache::Isolator->new(
      early_expires_ratio => 10, # This means 1/10 ratio
  );
expires_before

Optional. Seconds earlier expiration. Defaults is 10.

get_or_set( $key, $callback, $expires )

$callback is subroutine reference. That invoked when cache miss occurred.

get($key)

set($key, $value, $expires)

delete($key)
