ali-mns (ali-mqs)

npm version npm version

The nodejs sdk for aliyun mns service

阿里云消息服务-简体中文-帮助手册

Ali MNS service is a MQ(message queue) service provided by AliYun. The world largest online sales website www.taobao.com is heavily relying on it.

You can visit http://www.aliyun.com/product/mns for more details.

The original Ali-MQS service has been upgraded and changed it's name to Ali-MNS since June, 2015. Go to Migrate part for the old version informations.

QuickStart

Use 'npm install ali-mns' to install the package.

    var AliMNS = require("ali-mns");
    var account = new AliMNS.Account("<your-account-id>", "<your-key-id>", "<your-key-secret>");
    var mq = new AliMNS.MQ("<your-mq-name>", account, "hangzhou");
    // send message
    mq.sendP("Hello ali-mns").then(console.log, console.error);

More sample codes can be found in GitHub.

Promised

The ali-mns use the promise pattern. Any functions suffix with 'P' indicate a promise object will be returned from it.

Typescript

If you only want to use it, forget this.

Most source files are written in typescript instead of javascript. Visit http://www.typescriptlang.org/ for more information about typescript.

If you interest in source file, visit GitHub https://github.com/InCar/ali-mns

Please use 'gulp' to compile ts files into a single index.js file after downloading source files.

message: String. The content that sent to queue.

priority: number, optional. 1(lowest)~16(highest), default is 8.

delaySeconds: number, optional. How many seconds will the messages be visible after sent. 0~604800(7days), default is 0. This argument is prior to the options.DelaySeconds in attributes of message queue.

    mq.sendP("Hello Ali-MNS", 8, 0).then(console.log, console.error);

mq.getRecvTolerance() & mq.setRecvTolerance(value:number)

Gets or sets the tolerance seconds for mq.recvP method.

value: number. Default is 5, in seconds. How long will mq.recvP wait before timeout. Due to network lag, the return of mq.recvP method may be later than expected.

mq.recvP(waitSeconds?:number)

Receive a message from queue. This will change the message to invisible for a while.

waitSeconds: number. optional. The max seconds to wait if queue is empty, after that an error MessageNotExist will be returned.

    mq.recvP(5).then(console.log, console.error);

This method will wait waitSeconds + getRecvTolerance() totally if queue is empty.

mq.peekP()

Peek a message. This will not change the message to invisible.

    mq.peekP(5).then(console.log, console.error);

mq.deleteP(receiptHandle:string)

Delete a message from queue. A message will be invisible for a short time after received. A message must be deleted after processed, otherwise it can be received again.

receiptHandle: String. Return by mq.recvP or mq.notifyRecv.

    mq.recvP(5).then(function(data){
        return mq.deleteP(data.Message.ReceiptHandle);
    }).then(console.log, console.error);

mq.reserveP(receiptHandle:string, reserveSeconds:number)

Reserve a received message.

receiptHandle: String. Return by mq.recvP or mq.notifyRecv.

reserveSeconds: number. How long will the message be reserved, in seconds. 1~43200(12hours).

    mq.recvP().then(function(data){

    }).then(function(dataReserved){
            return mq.deleteP(dataReserved.ChangeVisibility.ReceiptHandle);
    });

If you need more time to process the message after received, you can reserve it for a longer time. The message will continue to keep invisible for reserveSeconds from now. Set a shorter time is also possible. If succeed, a new receiptHandle will be returned to replace the old one, further mq.deleteP or mq.reserveP should use the newer. And the newer receiptHandle will expired after reserveSeconds past.

mq.notifyRecv(cb:(ex:Error, msg:any)=>Boolean, waitSeconds?:number)

Register a callback function to receive messages.

cb: The callback function will be called once for each received message. And if the callback function return true, the message received will be delete automatically, while you should delete the message manually, if return false.

waitSeconds: number, optional. 1~30. The max seconds to wait in a polling loop, default is 5. At the begin of a polling loop, it will check if mq.notifyStopP has been called, So the bigger number will cause a slowly mq.notifyStopP. Set waitSeconds to 0 ,will actually use the default value 5 seconds instead.

    mq.notifyRecv(function(err, message){
        console.log(message);
        if(err && err.message === "NetworkBroken"){
            // Best to restart the process when this occurs
            throw err;
        }
        return true; // this will cause message to be deleted automatically
    });

Both callback functions will work if you call notifyRecv twice for 2 different callback functions. But each received message only will trigger one of them only.

mq.notifyStopP()

Stop mq.notifyRecv working. The promise object returned will not be resolved until the receiving loop stopped actually. The max time wait for notifyRecv() stop is determined by waitSeconds passed to mq.notifyRecv.

    mq.notifyStopP().then(console.log, console.error);

mq.getAttrsP()

Get the attributes of the mq.

mq.getAttrsP().then(console.log, console.error);

mq.setAttrsP(options:any)

Modify the attributes of mq.

options: the queue attributes. See the options of mns.createP.

        DelaySeconds: 0,
        MaximumMessageSize: 65536,
        MessageRetentionPeriod: 345600,
        VisibilityTimeout: 30,
        PollingWaitSeconds: 0
    }).then(console.log, console.error);

    var msgs = [];
    for(var i=0;i<5;i++){
        var msg = new AliMNS.Msg("BatchSend" + i, 8, 0);

            rhsToDel.push(dataRecv.Messages.Message[i].ReceiptHandle);
        }
    }).then(function(){
        return mqBatch.deleteP(rhsToDel);
    }).then(console.log, console.error);

DEBUG Trace

Set the environment variable DEBUG to "ali-mns" to enable the debug trace output.

# linux bash
export DEBUG=ali-mns

# windows
set DEBUG=ali-mns

Migrate

  • 1.The ali-mns is fully compatible with ali-mqs, simply replace the ali-mqs package to ali-mns.
// var AliMQS = require('ali-mqs');
var AliMQS = require('ali-mns');
  • 2.Optional. Change the ownerId to accountId Ali-Yun upgrade their account system, and recommend to use the newer account id instead of owner id. But the old owner id is still available for now.
var AliMQS = require("ali-mns");
// var account = new AliMNS.Account("hl35yqoedp", "<your-key-id>", "<your-key-secret>");
var account = new AliMNS.Account("1786090012649663", "<your-key-id>", "<your-key-secret>");

ownerId is mixed with number and letter

accountId is a 16-digits number, follow this link to find your accountId.

In GitHub, An branch v1.x keeps tracking for the old mqs services. And use `npm install ali-mqs' to install the ali-mqs package for v1.x.

Performance - Serial vs. Batch

Create 20 queues, then send 2000 messages to them randomly.

It is about 10 times slower in serial mode than in batch mode.

1st - Serial Mode(batch_size=1)

// 20 queues 2000 messages batch_size=1
  AliMNS-performance
    concurrent-queues
      √ #BatchSend (3547ms)
      √ #recvP (21605ms)
      √ #stopRecv (6075ms)

2nd - Batch Mode(Batch_size=16)

// 20 queues 2000 messages batch_size=16
  AliMNS-performance
    concurrent-queues
      √ #BatchSend (3472ms)
      √ #recvP (2125ms)
      √ #stopRecv (6044ms)

The testing code is in $/test/performance.js and a test log sample is in $/test/performance.log

Use npm run test to execute the test.

Set environment variable DEBUG to ali-mns.test to turn on output trace(will slow down the test).
