Fork the single process easily

Project description

Fork the single process easily

Basic example

import forklib
import logging
import os
from time import sleep


logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG)

def run():
    print(
        "Proceess #{id} has PID: {pid}".format(
            id=forklib.get_id(),
            pid=os.getpid()
        )
    )
    sleep(1)


def main():
    print("Master proccess has PID: {0}".format(os.getpid()))
    forklib.fork(4, run)



if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()

This code makes 4 forks. When you try to run it you will see something like this

Master proccess has PID: 39485
DEBUG:forklib.forking:Starting 4 processes
Proceess #1 has PID: 39487
Proceess #0 has PID: 39486
Proceess #2 has PID: 39488
Proceess #3 has PID: 39489
DEBUG:forklib.forking:Child with PID: 39487 Number: 1 exited normally
DEBUG:forklib.forking:Child with PID: 39489 Number: 3 exited normally
DEBUG:forklib.forking:Child with PID: 39488 Number: 2 exited normally
DEBUG:forklib.forking:Child with PID: 39486 Number: 0 exited normally

Forkme will be control forks. When subprocess will be killed or will exit with non-zero code it will be restarted immediately. e.g.:

Master proccess has PID: 7579
INFO:forklib:Starting 4 processes
Proceess #0 has PID: 7580
Proceess #1 has PID: 7581
Proceess #2 has PID: 7582
Proceess #3 has PID: 7583
WARNING:forklib:Child with PID: 7580 Number: 0 killed by signal 9, restarting
Proceess #0 has PID: 7584

async_callback example

import asyncio
import forklib
import logging
import os
from time import sleep


logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG)

def run():
    print(
        "Proceess #{id} has PID: {pid}".format(
            id=forklib.get_id(),
            pid=os.getpid()
        )
    )
    sleep(1)

async def amain():
    await asyncio.sleep(0.5)
    print("Async callback finished")


def main():
    print("Master proccess has PID: {0}".format(os.getpid()))

    forklib.fork(
        4, run,
        async_callback=amain,
        # Wait all incomplete async tasks, otherwise cancel (default)
        wait_async_callback = True,
    )



if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()

thread_callback example

import asyncio
import logging
import os
from time import sleep
from threading import Event

import forklib


logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG)


def run():
    print(
        "Proceess #{id} has PID: {pid}".format(
            id=forklib.get_id(),
            pid=os.getpid(),
        ),
    )
    sleep(3)


exit_event = Event()


def thread_callback():
    while not exit_event.is_set():
        sleep(0.5)
        print("Thread callback making great stuff")
    print("Thread callback finished")


async def async_callback():
    await asyncio.sleep(5)
    print("Async callback finished")


def main():
    print("Master proccess has PID: {0}".format(os.getpid()))
    forklib.fork(
        4, run,
        thread_callback=thread_callback,

        # Wait theread_callback, otherwise exit (default)
        # Note: You have to be careful when using this option.
        # Thread cancellation is impossible in the general case and you must
        # implement your own way of thread exit notification for example
        # like following one using exit_callback and threading.Event
        wait_thread_callback=True,

        # Notifying thread_callback about exit.
        exit_callback=exit_event.set,

        async_callback=async_callback,
        # Wait async_callback, otherwise cancel incomplete tasks (default)
        wait_async_callback=True
    )


if __name__ == "__main__":
    main()

Parallel iteration

You can load the large array of elements on the memory and process it in multiple processes. After forking the memory will not be copied, instead of the copy-on-write mechanism will be used.

from forklib import fork_map
import logging


logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)


def map_func(item):
    return item + 1


def main():
    for item in fork_map(map_func, range(20000), workers=10):
        print(item)


if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()
