Class SmallestMailboxPool

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Pool, PoolOverrideUnsetConfig<SmallestMailboxPool>, RouterConfig, java.io.Serializable, scala.Equals, scala.Product, scala.Serializable

    public final class SmallestMailboxPool
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements Pool, PoolOverrideUnsetConfig<SmallestMailboxPool>, scala.Product, scala.Serializable
    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(akka.actor.SupervisorStrategy). If no strategy is provided, routers default to a strategy of &ldquo;always escalate&rdquo;. 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.

    param: nrOfInstances initial number of routees in the pool

    param: resizer optional resizer that dynamically adjust the pool size

    param: supervisorStrategy strategy for supervising the routees, see 'Supervision Setup'

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

      • resizer

        public scala.Option<Resizer> resizer()
        Description copied from interface: Pool
        Pool with dynamically resizable number of routees return the Resizer to use. The resizer is invoked once when the router is created, before any messages can be sent to it. Resize is also triggered when messages are sent to the routees, and the resizer is invoked asynchronously, i.e. not necessarily before the message has been sent.
        Specified by:
        resizer in interface Pool
        Returns:
        (undocumented)
      • supervisorStrategy

        public SupervisorStrategy supervisorStrategy()
        Description copied from interface: Pool
        SupervisorStrategy for the head actor, i.e. for supervising the routees of the pool.
        Specified by:
        supervisorStrategy in interface Pool
        Returns:
        (undocumented)
      • routerDispatcher

        public java.lang.String routerDispatcher()
        Description copied from interface: RouterConfig
        Dispatcher ID to use for running the &ldquo;head&rdquo; actor, which handles supervision, death watch and router management messages
        Specified by:
