NAME
Parallel::Prefork - A simple prefork server framework
SYNOPSIS
use Parallel::Prefork;
my $pm = Parallel::Prefork->new({
max_workers => 10,
trap_signals => {
TERM => 'TERM',
HUP => 'TERM',
USR1 => undef,
}
});
while ($pm->signal_received ne 'TERM') {
load_config();
$pm->start(sub {
... do some work within the child process ...
});
}
$pm->wait_all_children();
DESCRIPTION
"Parallel::Prefork" is much like "Parallel::ForkManager", but supports
graceful shutdown and run-time reconfiguration.
METHODS
new
instantiation. Takes a hashref as an argument. Recognized attributes are
as follows.
max_workers
number of worker processes (default: 10)
spawn_interval
interval in seconds between spawning child processes unless a child
process exits abnormally (default: 0)
err_respawn_interval
number of seconds to deter spawning of child processes after a worker
exits abnormally (default: 1)
trap_signals
hashref of signals to be trapped. Manager process will trap the signals
listed in the keys of the hash, and send the signal specified in the
associated value (if any) to all worker processes. If the associated
value is a scalar then it is treated as the name of the signal to be
sent immediately to all the worker processes. If the value is an
arrayref the first value is treated the name of the signal and the
second value is treated as the interval (in seconds) between sending the
signal to each worker process.
on_child_reap
coderef that is called when a child is reaped. Receives the instance to
the current Paralle::Prefork, the child's pid, and its exit status.
before_fork
after_fork
coderefs that are called in the manager process before and after fork,
if being set
start
The main routine. There are two ways to use the function.
If given a subref as an argument, forks child processes and executes
that subref within the child processes. The processes will exit with 0
status when the subref returns.
The other way is to not give any arguments to the function. The function
returns undef in child processes. Caller should execute the application
logic and then call "finish" to terminate the process.
The "start" function returns true within manager process upon receiving
a signal specified in the "trap_signals" hashref.
finish
Child processes (when executed by a zero-argument call to "start")
should call this function for termination. Takes exit code as an
optional argument. Only usable from child processes.
signal_all_children
Sends signal to all worker processes. Only usable from manager process.
wait_all_children
Blocks until all worker processes exit. Only usable from manager
process.
