Feature request: set connection timeout #13

narkq commented Nov 6, 2012

There is currently no way to set a connection timeout through the API.

This is really sad when you're trying to use AMQPQueue::consume in a web server environment. If you've got no messages in 5-10 seconds, most likely this request will be canceled by user, and it makes more sense to report a timeout than to hang there indefinitely waiting for a message. I know that AMQP 0.9.1 spec doesn't support connection timeouts, but I think this feature is important enough.

This pull request adds the following:

  • INI setting amqp.timeout
  • AMQPConnection::getTimeout method
  • AMQPConnection::setTimeout method. If connection is already established, timeout is set immediately. Otherwise, timeout is set next time connection is established.
  • timeout option for AMQPConnection::__construct
  • every method that reads from channel can throw AMQPConnectionException now
  • AMQPConnectionException::getCode returns an error code from librabbitmq
  • AMQP_OS_SOCKET_TIMEOUT_ERRNO constant to distinguish timeouts from any other connection error

Wow! This adds functionality even missing from librabbitmq!
In the past I used pcntl_alarm() to abort consume calls, but handling this on the socket level is much nicer!
