High-Performance Erlang Network Client Framework

Build Status Coverage Status

Requirements

  • Erlang 16.0+

Features

  • Backpressure via backlog (OOM protection)
  • Fast pool implementation (random, round_robin)
  • Managed timeouts
  • Multi-protocol support (SSL / TCP / UDP)
  • Performance-optimized
  • Request pipelining
  • Smart reconnect mechanism (exponential backoff)

Framework goals

  • Reusability
  • Speed
  • Concurrency
  • Safety

How-to

Implementing a client

-behavior(shackle_client).
-export([
    init/0,
    setup/2,
    handle_request/2,
    handle_data/2,
    terminate/1
]).

-record(state, {
    buffer =       <<>> :: binary(),
    request_counter = 0 :: non_neg_integer()
}).

-spec init(Options :: term()) ->
    {ok, State :: term()} |
    {error, Reason :: term()}.

init(_Options) ->
    {ok, #state {}}.

-spec setup(Socket :: inet:socket(), State :: term()) ->
    {ok, State :: term()} |
    {error, Reason :: term(), State :: term()}.

setup(Socket, State) ->
    case gen_tcp:send(Socket, <<"INIT">>) of
        ok ->
            case gen_tcp:recv(Socket, 0) of
                {ok, <<"OK">>} ->
                    {ok, State};
                {error, Reason} ->
                    {error, Reason, State}
            end;
        {error, Reason} ->
            {error, Reason, State}
    end.

-spec handle_request(Request :: term(), State :: term()) ->
    {ok, RequestId :: external_request_id(), Data :: iodata(), State :: term()}.

handle_request({Operation, A, B}, #state {
        request_counter = RequestCounter
    } = State) ->

    RequestId = request_id(RequestCounter),
    Data = request(RequestId, Operation, A, B),

    {ok, RequestId, Data, State#state {
        request_counter = RequestCounter + 1
    }}.

-spec handle_data(Data :: binary(), State :: term()) ->
    {ok, [{RequestId :: external_request_id(), Reply :: term()}], State :: term()}.

handle_data(Data, #state {
        buffer = Buffer
    } = State) ->

    Data2 = <<Buffer/binary, Data/binary>>,
    {Replies, Buffer2} = parse_replies(Data2, []),

    {ok, Replies, State#state {
        buffer = Buffer2
    }}.

-spec terminate(State :: term()) -> ok.

terminate(_State) -> ok.

Starting client pool

shackle_pool:start(pool_name(), client(), client_options(), pool_options())
client_options()
Name Type Default Description
ip inet:ip_address() | inet:hostname() "127.0.0.1" server ip
port inet:port_number() undefined server port
protocol shackle_tcp | shackle_udp shackle_tcp server protocol
reconnect boolean() true reconnect closed connections
reconnect_time_max pos_integer() | infinity 120000 maximum reconnect time in milliseconds
reconnect_time_min none | pos_integer() 1000 minimum reconnect time in milliseconds
socket_options [gen_tcp:connect_option() | gen_udp:option()] [] options passed to the socket
pool_options()
Name Type Default Description
backlog_size pos_integer() | infinity 1024 maximum number of concurrent requests per connection
pool_size pos_integer() 16 number of connections
pool_strategy random | round_robin random connection selection strategy

Calling / Casting client

1> shackle:call(pool_name, {get, <<"test">>}).
{ok, <<"bar">>}

2> {ok, ReqId} = shackle:cast(pool_name, {get, <<"foo">>}, 500).
{ok, {anchor, anchor_client, #Ref<0.0.0.2407>}}

3> shackle:receive_response(ReqId).
{ok, <<"bar">>}

Tests

make dialyzer
make elvis
make eunit
make xref

Performance testing

To run performance testing targets you must first start the server:

./bin/rebar3 as test shell
===> Verifying dependencies...
===> Compiling shackle
Erlang/OTP 18 [erts-7.3.1] [source] [64-bit] [smp:4:4] [async-threads:0] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false] [dtrace]

Eshell V7.3.1  (abort with ^G)
1> arithmetic_tcp_server:start().
ok

Then you can run the bench or profile target:

make bench
make profile

Clients

Name Description
anchor Memcached Client
buoy HTTP 1.1 Client
flare Kafka Producer
marina Cassandra CQL Client
