DESCRIPTION

RingyDingy is a little boat that keeps your DRb service afloat! RingyDingy automatically registers a service with a RingServer. If communication between the RingServer and the RingyDingy is lost, RingyDingy will re-register its service with the RingServer when it reappears.

Similarly, the RingServer will automatically drop registrations by a RingyDingy that it can't communicate with after a short timeout.

RingyDingy also includes a RingServer wrapper that adds verbose mode to see what services as they register and expire and an option to list all available services on the network.

Installing RingyDingy

Just install the gem:

$ sudo gem install RingyDingy

Using RingyDingy

require 'rubygems'
require 'ringy_dingy'
require 'my_drb_service'

my_drb_service = MyDRbService.new

RingyDingy.new(my_drb_service).run

DRb.thread.join

Using RingyDingy::RingServer

To start a RingServer:

$ ring_server

To list services on the network:

$ ring_server -l

To enable or disable verbose mode remotely:

$ ring_server --set-logging=true/false
