On Demand/Wakeable Introspector

This component grabs a list of all running/runnable components whenever it receives a message on its inbox "inbox". This list is then sorted, and noted to a logfile.

Example Usage

This component is intended to be used with PeriodicWakeup, as follows:


How does it work?

This component uses the fact that we can ask the scheduler for a list of running componenents, takes this, sorts it and dumps the result to a logfile.

It then sits quietly waking for a message (any message) on the inbox "inbox".


This component is not well behaved regarding termination, in that it does not have any shutdown conditions.


In retrospect, it may've been nicer to split the introspection from the logging. Better termination/shutdown would be a good idea.

Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.
