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

    A router pool that will try to redistribute work from busy routees to idle routees.

    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.

    Uses consistent hashing to select a routee based on the sent message.

    There is 3 ways to define what data to use for the consistent hash key.

    1. You can define hashMapping / withHashMapper of the router to map incoming messages to their consistent hash key. This makes the decision transparent for the sender.

    2. The messages may implement akka.routing.ConsistentHashingRouter.ConsistentHashable. The key is part of the message and it's convenient to define it together with the message definition.

    3. The messages can be wrapped in a akka.routing.ConsistentHashingRouter.ConsistentHashableEnvelope to define what data to use for the consistent hash key. The sender knows the key to use.

    These ways to define the consistent hash key can be use together and at the same time for one router. The hashMapping is tried first.

  15. final case class Deafen(listener: ActorRef) extends ListenerMessage with Product with Serializable
  16. case class DefaultOptimalSizeExploringResizer(lowerBound: PoolSize = 1, upperBound: PoolSize = 30, chanceOfScalingDownWhenFull: Double = 0.2, actionInterval: Duration = 5.seconds, numOfAdjacentSizesToConsiderDuringOptimization: Int = 16, exploreStepSize: Double = 0.1, downsizeRatio: Double = 0.8, downsizeAfterUnderutilizedFor: Duration = 72.hours, explorationProbability: Double = 0.4, weightOfLatestMetric: Double = 0.5) extends OptimalSizeExploringResizer with Product with Serializable

    This resizer resizes the pool to an optimal size that provides the most message throughput.

    This resizer resizes the pool to an optimal size that provides the most message throughput.

    This resizer works best when you expect the pool size to performance function to be a convex function.

    For example, when you have a CPU bound tasks, the optimal size is bound to the number of CPU cores. When your task is IO bound, the optimal size is bound to optimal number of concurrent connections to that IO service - e.g. a 4 node elastic search cluster may handle 4-8 concurrent requests at optimal speed.

    It achieves this by keeping track of message throughput at each pool size and performing the following three resizing operations (one at a time) periodically:

    * Downsize if it hasn't seen all routees ever fully utilized for a period of time. * Explore to a random nearby pool size to try and collect throughput metrics. * Optimize to a nearby pool size with a better (than any other nearby sizes) throughput metrics.

    When the pool is fully-utilized (i.e. all routees are busy), it randomly choose between exploring and optimizing. When the pool has not been fully-utilized for a period of time, it will downsize the pool to the last seen max utilization multiplied by a configurable ratio.

    By constantly exploring and optimizing, the resizer will eventually walk to the optimal size and remain nearby. When the optimal size changes it will start walking towards the new one.

    It keeps a performance log so it's stateful as well as having a larger memory footprint than the default Resizer. The memory usage is O(n) where n is the number of sizes you allow, i.e. upperBound - lowerBound.

    For documentation about the parameters, see the reference.conf - akka.actor.deployment.default.optimal-size-exploring-resizer

    Implementation of Resizer that adjust the Pool based on specified thresholds.

    Implementation of Resizer that adjust the Pool based on specified thresholds.

    lowerBound

    The fewest number of routees the router should ever have.

    upperBound

    The most number of routees the router should ever have. Must be greater than or equal to lowerBound.

    pressureThreshold

    Threshold to evaluate if routee is considered to be busy (under pressure). Implementation depends on this value (default is 1).

    • 0: number of routees currently processing a message.
    • 1: number of routees currently processing a message has some messages in mailbox.
    • > 1: number of routees with at least the configured pressureThreshold messages in their mailbox. Note that estimating mailbox size of default UnboundedMailbox is O(N) operation.
    rampupRate

    Percentage to increase capacity whenever all routees are busy. For example, 0.2 would increase 20% (rounded up), i.e. if current capacity is 6 it will request an increase of 2 more routees.

    backoffThreshold

    Minimum fraction of busy routees before backing off. For example, if this is 0.3, then we'll remove some routees only when less than 30% of routees are busy, i.e. if current capacity is 10 and 3 are busy then the capacity is unchanged, but if 2 or less are busy the capacity is decreased. Use 0.0 or negative to avoid removal of routees.

    backoffRate

    Fraction of routees to be removed when the resizer reaches the backoffThreshold. For example, 0.1 would decrease 10% (rounded up), i.e. if current capacity is 9 it will request an decrease of 1 routee.

    messagesPerResize

    Number of messages between resize operation. Use 1 to resize before each message.

    A router pool that tries to send to the non-suspended routee with fewest messages in mailbox.

    A router pool that tries to send to the non-suspended routee with fewest messages in mailbox. The selection is done in this order:

    • pick any idle routee (not processing message) with empty mailbox
    • pick any routee with empty mailbox
    • pick routee with fewest pending messages in mailbox
    • pick any remote routee, remote actors are consider lowest priority, since their mailbox size is unknown

    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.

    A router group with retry logic, intended for cases where a return message is expected in response to a message sent to the routee. As each message is sent to the routing group, the routees are randomly ordered. The message is sent to the first routee. If no response is received before the interval has passed, the same message is sent to the next routee. This process repeats until either a response is received from some routee, the routees in the group are exhausted, or the within duration has passed since the first send. If no routee sends a response in time, a akka.actor.Status.Failure wrapping a akka.pattern.AskTimeoutException is sent to the sender.

    Refer to akka.routing.TailChoppingRoutingLogic for comments regarding the goal of this routing algorithm.

    As each message is sent to the router, the routees are randomly ordered.

    As each message is sent to the router, the routees are randomly ordered. The message is sent to the first routee. If no response is received before the interval has passed, the same message is sent to the next routee. This process repeats until either a response is received from some routee, the routees in the pool are exhausted, or the within duration has passed since the first send. If no routee sends a response in time, a akka.actor.Status.Failure wrapping a akka.pattern.AskTimeoutException is sent to the sender.

    The goal of this routing algorithm is to decrease tail latencies ("chop off the tail latency") in situations where multiple routees can perform the same piece of work, and where a routee may occasionally respond more slowly than expected. In this case, sending the same work request (also known as a "backup request") to another actor results in decreased response time - because it's less probable that multiple actors are under heavy load simultaneously. This technique is explained in depth in Jeff Dean's presentation on Achieving Rapid Response Times in Large Online Services.

    An object designed to generate well-distributed non-cryptographic hashes. It is designed to hash a collection of integers; along with the integers to hash, it generates two magic streams of integers to increase the distribution of repetitive input sequences. Thus, three methods need to be called at each step (to start and to incorporate a new integer) to update the values. Only one method needs to be called to finalize the hash.
