DESCRIPTION

POE::Component::SmokeBox::Backend is the smoker backend to POE::Component::SmokeBox::JobQueue and ultimately POE::Component::SmokeBox.

It takes a processes a single CPAN distribution against a given perl executable using a configurable backend type ( currently, CPAN::YACSmoke, CPANPLUS::YACSmoke or CPAN::Reporter ), monitors the process for idle ( ie. no output ) or excess runtime, and returns the results to the requesting POE::Session.

CONSTRUCTOR

spawn

Creates a new POE::Component::SmokeBox::Backend component. Takes a number of parameters:

  'event', the event to return the results to, mandatory;
  'session', specify an alternative POE session to send the results to;
  'command', the backend command to run: check, index, smoke, default is check;
  'perl', the path to the perl executable to use, default is $^X;
  'type', the type of backend to use, default is CPANPLUS::YACSmoke;
  'idle', change the idle timeout, specified in seconds, default is 600;
  'timeout', change runtime timeout, specified in seconds, default is 3600;
  'module', the module to process, mandatory if 'smoke' command is specified;
  'env', a hashref of %ENV values to set when processing;
  'no_log', enable to not store the job output log, default is false;

You may also pass in arbitary parameters which will passed back to you in the event specified. These arbitary parameters must be prefixed with an underscore.

Returns a POE::Component::SmokeBox::Backend object.

check

As above, but automagically runs a check.

index

As above, but automagically runs an index.

smoke

As above, but automagically runs an smoke.

METHODS

session_id

Returns the component's POE::Session ID.

shutdown

Terminates the component. The current job is killed as a result.

current_log

Returns an arrayref containing lines of output from the current job.

INPUT EVENTS

shutdown

Terminates the component. The current job is killed as a result.

OUTPUT EVENTS

ARG0 of the event specified in one of the constructors will be a hashref with the following keys:

  'log', an arrayref of STDOUT and STDERR produced by the job;
  'PID', the process ID of the POE::Wheel::Run;
  'status', the $? of the process;
  'start_time', the time in epoch seconds when the job started running;
  'end_time', the time in epoch seconds when the job finished;
  'idle_kill', only present if the job was killed because of excessive idle;
  'excess_kill', only present if the job was killed due to excessive runtime;
  'term_kill', only present if the job was killed due to a poco shutdown event;
  'cb_kill', only present if the job was killed due to the callback returning false;

Plus any of the parameters given to one of the constructors, including arbitary ones.

ENVIRONMENT

Setting the environment variable PERL5_SMOKEBOX_DEBUG will cause the component to spew out lots of information on STDERR.
