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.
This component is intended to be used with PeriodicWakeup, as follows:
Pipeline( PeriodicWakeup(interval=20), WakeableIntrospector(logfile="/tmp/trace"), )
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.
Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!
Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
