Decorator-based exponential backoff

Project description

Python Backoff Decorator

This package implements exponential backoff as a decorator. Backoff is
triggered by an exception and is reset when the call is successful.


Apply exponential backoff to any function or method by simply adding the

import backoff
import requests

def send_data(data):'', data={'data': data})

# do something with data that wasn't posted

In the example above calls to `send_data()` will exponentially backoff when
POST is not successful.

Calls During Backoff Period

Any calls made during the backoff period will raise an `InBackoff` exception.

Setting Maximum Backoff

By default the maximum backoff is 1 hour. The `max_backoff` argument can be
passed to change the default; the following will only backoff for 5 minutes:

def send_data(data):'', data={'data': data})
