7.24.23. grn_thread_*

7.24.23.1. Summary

Groonga provides thread related APIs with grn_thread_ prefix.

Normally, you don't need to use these APIs.

You may want to use these APIs when you write a Groonga server.

7.24.23.2. Example

Here is a real word use case of grn_thread_* APIs by groonga executable file. groonga executable file increases its thread pool size when the max number of threads is increased. groonga executable file decreases its thread pool size and stops too many threads when the max number of threads is decreased.

static grn_mutex q_mutex;
static grn_cond q_cond;
static uint32_t nfthreads;
static uint32_t max_nfthreads;

static uint32_t
groonga_get_thread_limit(void *data)
{
  return max_nfthreads;
}

static void
groonga_set_thread_limit(uint32_t new_limit, void *data)
{
  uint32_t i;
  uint32_t current_nfthreads;

  MUTEX_LOCK(q_mutex);
  current_nfthreads = nfthreads;
  max_nfthreads = new_limit;
  MUTEX_UNLOCK(q_mutex);

  if (current_nfthreads > new_limit) {
    for (i = 0; i < current_nfthreads; i++) {
      MUTEX_LOCK(q_mutex);
      COND_SIGNAL(q_cond);
      MUTEX_UNLOCK(q_mutex);
    }
  }
}

int
main(int argc, char *argv)
{
  /* ... */
  grn_thread_set_get_limit_func(groonga_get_thread_limit, NULL);
  grn_thread_set_set_limit_func(groonga_set_thread_limit, NULL);

  grn_init();

  /* ... */
}

7.24.23.3. Reference

uint32_t (*grn_thread_get_limit_func)(void *data)

It's the type of function that returns the max number of threads.

void (*grn_thread_set_limit_func)(uint32_t new_limit, void *data)

It's the type of function that sets the max number of threads.

uint32_t grn_thread_get_limit(void)

It returns the max number of threads.

If grn_thread_get_limit_func isn't set by grn_thread_set_get_limit_func(), it always returns 0.

Returns:The max number of threads or 0.
void_t grn_thread_set_limit(uint32_t new_limit)

It sets the max number of threads.

If grn_thread_set_limit_func isn't set by grn_thread_set_set_limit_func(), it does nothing.

Parameters:
  • new_limit -- The new max number of threads.
void grn_thread_set_get_limit_func(grn_thread_get_limit_func func, void *data)

It sets the custom function that returns the max number of threads.

data is passed to func when func is called from grn_thread_get_limit().

Parameters:
  • func -- The custom function that returns the max number of threads.
  • data -- An user data to be passed to func when func is called.
void grn_thread_set_set_limit_func(grn_thread_set_limit_func func, void *data)

It sets the custom function that sets the max number of threads.

data is passed to func when func is called from grn_thread_set_limit().

Parameters:
  • func -- The custom function that sets the max number of threads.
  • data -- An user data to be passed to func when func is called.
