TIMEOUT METHODS

get_microseconds()

Return the current time in microseconds

get_microseconds_since( $time )

Return the number of microseconds since the given time (in microseconds)

is_exception_type( $exception )

Given a Mail::Milter::Authentication::Exception object, this return the exception object type. Otherwise returns undef.

handle_exception( $exception )

Handle exceptions thrown, this method currently handles the timeout type, by re-throwing the exception.

Should be called in Handlers when handling local exceptions, such that the higher level timeout exceptions are properly handled.

get_time_remaining()

Return the time remaining (in microseconds) for the current Handler section level callback timeout.

set_alarm( $microseconds )

Set a timeout alarm for $microseconds, and set the time remaining in the top level handler object.

set_handler_alarm( $microseconds )

Set an alarm for $microseconds, or the current time remaining for the section callback, whichever is the lower. This should be used in Handler timeouts to ensure that a local timeout never goes for longer than the current handler section, or protocol section level timeout.

reset_alarm()

Reset the alarm to the current time remaining in the section or protocol level timeouts.

This should be called in Handlers after local timeouts have completed, to reset the higher level timeout alarm value.

clear_overall_timeout()

Clear the current Handler level timeout, should be called from the Protocol layer, never from the Handler layer.

set_overall_timeout( $microseconds )

Set the time in microseconds after which the Handler layer should timeout, called from the Protocol later, never from the Handler layer.

get_type_timeout( $type )

For a given timeout type, return the configured timeout value, or the current handler level timeout, whichever is lower.
