Overview ▾

Package batcher implements the batching resiliency pattern for Go.

type Batcher

Batcher implements the batching resiliency pattern

type Batcher struct {
    // contains filtered or unexported fields



b := New(10*time.Millisecond, func(params []interface{}) error {
    // do something with the batch of parameters
    return nil

b.Prefilter(func(param interface{}) error {
    // do some sort of sanity check on the parameter, and return an error if it fails
    return nil

for i := 0; i < 10; i++ {
    go b.Run(i)

func New

func New(timeout time.Duration, doWork func([]interface{}) error) *Batcher

New constructs a new batcher that will batch all calls to Run that occur within `timeout` time before calling doWork just once for the entire batch. The doWork function must be safe to run concurrently with itself as this may occur, especially when the timeout is small.

func (*Batcher) Prefilter

func (b *Batcher) Prefilter(filter func(interface{}) error)

Prefilter specifies an optional function that can be used to run initial checks on parameters passed to Run before being added to the batch. If the prefilter returns a non-nil error, that error is returned immediately from Run and the batcher is not invoked. A prefilter cannot safely be specified for a batcher if Run has already been invoked. The filter function specified must be concurrency-safe.

func (*Batcher) Run

func (b *Batcher) Run(param interface{}) error

Run runs the work function with the given parameter, possibly including it in a batch with other calls to Run that occur within the specified timeout. It is safe to call Run concurrently on the same batcher.
