seastar::gate Class Reference

Detailed Description

Facility to stop new requests, and to tell when existing requests are done.

When stopping a service that serves asynchronous requests, we are faced with two problems: preventing new requests from coming in, and knowing when existing requests have completed. The gate class provides a solution.

#include <seastar/core/gate.hh>

Member Function Documentation

◆ check()

void seastar::gate::check ( )

Potentially stop an in-progress request.

If the gate is already closed, a gate_closed_exception is thrown. By using enter() and leave(), the program can ensure that no further requests are serviced. However, long-running requests may continue to run. The check() method allows such a long operation to voluntarily stop itself after the gate is closed, by making calls to check() in appropriate places. check() with throw an exception and bail out of the long-running code if the gate is closed.

◆ close()

future seastar::gate::close ( )

Closes the gate.

Future calls to enter() will fail with an exception, and when all current requests call leave(), the returned future will be made ready.

◆ enter()

void seastar::gate::enter ( )

Registers an in-progress request.

If the gate is not closed, the request is registered. Otherwise, a gate_closed_exception is thrown.

◆ leave()

void seastar::gate::leave ( )

Unregisters an in-progress request.

If the gate is closed, and there are no more in-progress requests, the closed() promise will be fulfilled.
