Go simple async worker pool.

πŸ“– ABOUT

Worker pool is a software design pattern for achieving concurrency of task execution. Maintains multiple workers waiting for tasks to be allocated for concurrent execution. By maintaining a pool of workers, the model increases performance and avoids latency in execution. The number of available workers might be tuned to the computing resources available.

You can read more about worker pools in Go here.

🏫 Basic example

package main

import (
    "fmt"
    "sync"

    "github.com/vardius/worker-pool/v2"
)

func main() {
	var wg sync.WaitGroup

	poolSize := 1
	jobsAmount := 3
	workersAmount := 2

	// create new pool
	pool := workerpool.New(poolSize)
	out := make(chan int, jobsAmount)
	worker := func(i int) {
        defer wg.Done()
        out <- i
    }

	for i := 1; i <= workersAmount; i++ {
		if err := pool.AddWorker(worker); err != nil {
			panic(err)
		}
	}

	wg.Add(jobsAmount)

	for i := 0; i < jobsAmount; i++ {
		if err := pool.Delegate(i); err != nil {
			panic(err)
		}
	}

	go func() {
		// stop all workers after jobs are done
		wg.Wait()
		close(out)
		pool.Stop() // stop removes all workers from pool, to resume work add them again
	}()

	sum := 0
	for n := range out {
		sum += n
	}

	fmt.Println(sum)
	// Output:
	// 3
