Overview

Base class and namespace for all Dispatcher services.

RPC accessibility

Only PUBLIC methods YOU have defined will be accessible over RPC.

Blocking operations

Please try to avoid blocking operations as they will block the main Reactor loop.

However, if you really need to perform such operations, you can update the relevant methods to expect a block and then pass the desired return value to that block instead of returning it the usual way.

This will result in the method's payload to be deferred into a Thread of its own.

In addition, you can use the #defer and #run_asap methods is you need more control over what gets deferred and general scheduling.

Asynchronous operations

Methods which perform async operations should expect a block and pass their results to that block instead of returning a value.

#defer(operation = nil, callback = nil, &block) ⇒ Object

Defers a blocking operation in order to avoid blocking the main Reactor loop.

The operation will be run in its own Thread - DO NOT block forever.

Accepts either 2 parameters (an operation and a callback or an operation as a block.

Parameters:

  • operation (Proc) (defaults to: nil)

    Operation to defer.

  • callback (Proc) (defaults to: nil)

    Block to call with the results of the operation.

  • block (Block)

    Operation to defer.

# File 'lib/arachni/rpc/server/dispatcher/service.rb', line 91

def defer( operation = nil, callback = nil, &block )
    Thread.new( *[operation, callback].compact, &block )
end

#each_instance(&block) ⇒ Object

Performs an asynchronous iteration over all running instances.

Parameters:

  • block (Proc)

    Block to be passed Client::Instance and Arachni::Reactor::Iterator.

    wrap = proc do |instance, iterator|
        block.call( connect_to_instance( instance ), iterator )
    end
    iterator_for( instances ).each( &wrap )
end

#instancesArray<Hash>

end

#iterator_for(list, max_concurrency = 10) ⇒ Reactor::Iterator

Returns Iterator for the provided array.

Parameters:

Returns:

  • (Reactor::Iterator)

    Iterator for the provided array.

def iterator_for( list, max_concurrency = 10 )
    Reactor.global.create_iterator( list, max_concurrency )
end

#map_instances(each, after) ⇒ Object

Performs an asynchronous map operation over all running instances.

Parameters:

  • each (Proc)

    Block to be passed Client::Instance and Arachni::Reactor::Iterator.

  • after (Proc)

    Block to be passed the Array of results.
