BalancingPool

final case class BalancingPool(nrOfInstances: Int, supervisorStrategy: SupervisorStrategy = Pool.defaultSupervisorStrategy, routerDispatcher: String = ...) extends Pool with Product with Serializable

A router pool that will try to redistribute work from busy routees to idle routees. All routees share the same mailbox.

Although the technique used in this implementation is commonly known as "work stealing", the actual implementation is probably best described as "work donating" because the actor of which work is being stolen takes the initiative.

The configuration parameter trumps the constructor arguments. This means that if you provide nrOfInstances during instantiation they will be ignored if the router is defined in the configuration file for the actor being used.

Supervision Setup

Any routees that are created by a router will be created as the router's children. The router is therefore also the children's supervisor.

The supervision strategy of the router actor can be configured with #withSupervisorStrategy. If no strategy is provided, routers default to a strategy of “always escalate”. This means that errors are passed up to the router's supervisor for handling.

The router's supervisor will treat the error as an error with the router itself. Therefore a directive to stop or restart will cause the router itself to stop or restart. The router, in turn, will cause its children to stop and restart.

nrOfInstances

initial number of routees in the pool

supervisorStrategy

strategy for supervising the routees, see 'Supervision Setup'

routerDispatcher

dispatcher to use for the router head actor, which handles supervision, death watch and router management messages
