Class RemoteTransport

  • Direct Known Subclasses:
    ArteryTransport, Remoting

    public abstract class RemoteTransport
    extends java.lang.Object

    The remote transport is responsible for sending and receiving messages. Each transport has an address, which it should provide in Serialization.currentTransportInformation (thread-local) while serializing actor references (which might also be part of messages). This address must be available (i.e. fully initialized) by the time the first message is received or when the start() method returns, whatever happens first.

    • Method Detail

      • addresses

        public abstract scala.collection.immutable.Set<Address> addresses()
        Address to be used in RootActorPath of refs generated for this transport.
      • defaultAddress

        public abstract Address defaultAddress()
        The default transport address of the ActorSystem
        The listen address of the default transport
      • localAddressForRemote

        public abstract Address localAddressForRemote​(Address remote)
        Resolves the correct local address to be used for contacting the given remote address
        remote - the remote address
        the local address to be used for the given remote address
      • log

        public abstract LoggingAdapter log()
        A Logger that can be used to log issues that may occur
      • managementCommand

        public scala.concurrent.Future<java.lang.Object> managementCommand​(java.lang.Object cmd)
        Sends a management command to the underlying transport stack. The call returns with a Future that indicates if the command was handled successfully or dropped.
        cmd - Command message to send to the transports.
        A Future that indicates when the message was successfully handled or dropped.
      • quarantine

        public abstract void quarantine​(Address address,
                                        scala.Option<java.lang.Object> uid,
                                        java.lang.String reason)
        Marks a remote system as out of sync and prevents reconnects until the quarantine timeout elapses.
        address - Address of the remote system to be quarantined
        uid - UID of the remote system, if the uid is not defined it will not be a strong quarantine but the current endpoint writer will be stopped (dropping system messages) and the address will be gated
      • send

        public abstract void send​(java.lang.Object message,
                                  OptionVal<ActorRef> senderOption,
                                  RemoteActorRef recipient)
        Sends the given message to the recipient supplying the sender() if any
      • shutdown

        public abstract scala.concurrent.Future<Done> shutdown()
        Shuts down the remoting
      • start

        public abstract void start()
        Start up the transport, i.e. enable incoming connections.
