cluster-proxy

0.1.0 • Public • Published

This module allows a clusterized node.js application to have a shared object between the master and worker processes.

Internally it uses message passing and JSON serialization of arguments and return values, so the abstraction is not perfect (objects like file references, sockets, bound functions, etc. cannot be passed around).

You can read the full generated jsdoc here: http://bazaarvoice.github.io/node-cluster-proxy/out/index.html

Example of usage

var cluster = require('cluster');
var clusterproxy = require('cluster-proxy');
if (cluster.isMaster) {
  var delegate = {
    a : 42,
    f : function(a, b) {
      return a + b;
    },
    g : function(a, cb) {
      cb(null, a*2, a*a);
    }
  };
  var master = new clusterproxy.Master({delegate: delegate});
  master.connectWorker(cluster.fork());
} else { //worker process
  var proxy = new clusterproxy.Worker();
  proxy.get('a', console.log);
  proxy.invoke('f', 1, 2, console.log);
  proxy.invokeAsync('g',//method name
                     21,//argument for the invoked method
                     function(proxyErr, delegateErr, double, square) {//callback: note that we have two error arguments, one for the cluster proxy itself (timeouts, etc.) and another for the delegate errors.
    if(!proxyErr && !delegateErr) {
      console.log('double:', double, 'square:', square);
    } else {
      console.log('error:', proxyErr || delegateErr);
    }
  });
}
