TimerScheduler

abstract class TimerScheduler extends AnyRef

Support for scheduled self messages in an actor. It is used by mixing in trait Timers in Scala or extending AbstractActorWithTimers in Java.

Timers are bound to the lifecycle of the actor that owns it, and thus are cancelled automatically when it is restarted or stopped.

TimerScheduler is not thread-safe, i.e. it must only be used within the actor that owns it.

Abstract Value Members

  1. abstract def cancel(key: Any): Unit

    Cancel a timer with a given key.

    Cancel a timer with a given key. If canceling a timer that was already canceled, or key never was used to start a timer this operation will do nothing.

    It is guaranteed that a message from a canceled timer, including its previous incarnation for the same key, will not be received by the actor, even though the message might already be enqueued in the mailbox when cancel is called.

  2. abstract def cancelAll(): Unit

    Cancel all timers.

  3. abstract def isTimerActive(key: Any): Boolean

    Check if a timer with a given key is active.

  4. abstract def startSingleTimer(key: Any, msg: Any, timeout: FiniteDuration): Unit

    Start a timer that will send msg once to the self actor after the given timeout.

    Start a timer that will send msg once to the self actor after the given timeout.

    Each timer has a key and if a new timer with same key is started the previous is cancelled and it's guaranteed that a message from the previous timer is not received, even though it might already be enqueued in the mailbox when the new timer is started.

  5. abstract def startTimerAtFixedRate(key: Any, msg: Any, interval: FiniteDuration): Unit

    Scala API: Schedules a message to be sent repeatedly to the self actor with a given frequency.

    Scala API: Schedules a message to be sent repeatedly to the self actor with a given frequency.

    It will compensate the delay for a subsequent message if the sending of previous message was delayed more than specified. In such cases, the actual message interval will differ from the interval passed to the method.

    If the execution is delayed longer than the interval, the subsequent message will be sent immediately after the prior one. This also has the consequence that after long garbage collection pauses or other reasons when the JVM was suspended all "missed" messages will be sent when the process wakes up again.

    In the long run, the frequency of messages will be exactly the reciprocal of the specified interval.

    Warning: startTimerAtFixedRate can result in bursts of scheduled messages after long garbage collection pauses, which may in worst case cause undesired load on the system. Therefore startTimerWithFixedDelay is often preferred.

    Each timer has a key and if a new timer with same key is started the previous is cancelled and it's guaranteed that a message from the previous timer is not received, even though it might already be enqueued in the mailbox when the new timer is started.

  6. abstract def startTimerWithFixedDelay(key: Any, msg: Any, delay: FiniteDuration): Unit

    Scala API: Schedules a message to be sent repeatedly to the self actor with a fixed delay between messages.

    Scala API: Schedules a message to be sent repeatedly to the self actor with a fixed delay between messages.

    It will not compensate the delay between messages if scheduling is delayed longer than specified for some reason. The delay between sending of subsequent messages will always be (at least) the given delay.

    In the long run, the frequency of messages will generally be slightly lower than the reciprocal of the specified delay.

    Each timer has a key and if a new timer with same key is started the previous is cancelled and it's guaranteed that a message from the previous timer is not received, even though it might already be enqueued in the mailbox when the new timer is started.

  7. abstract def startPeriodicTimer(key: Any, msg: Any, interval: FiniteDuration): Unit

    Deprecated API: See TimerScheduler#startTimerWithFixedDelay or TimerScheduler#startTimerAtFixedRate.
