Least-latency balancer for recluster

Installation

npm install least-latency-balancer

Usage

In your cluster.js that uses recluster, use llb.createBalancer to create a LL balancing server.

var recluster = require('recluster'),
    path = require('path'),
    llb = require('least-latency-balancer')

var cluster = recluster(path.join(__dirname, 'server.js'), {
  readyWhen: 'ready'
});

cluster.run();

process.on('SIGUSR2', function() {
    console.log('Got SIGUSR2, reloading cluster...');
    cluster.reload();
});

console.log("spawned cluster, kill -s SIGUSR2", process.pid, "to reload");

// Added for the balancer:

var balancer = llb.createBalancer({
  activeWorkers: cluster.activeWorkers,
});

balancer.listen(8081, function() {
  console.log("Least latency balancer listening on port", 8081);
});

In your server.js, use llb.listen instead of server.listen to start the server, then use process.send({cmd: 'ready'}) to indicate that the worker is ready.

var llb = require('least-latency-balancer');

var server = require('http').createServer(function(req, res) {
  res.end('worker: ' + process.env.NODE_WORKER_ID);
});

llb.listen(server)

process.send({cmd: 'ready'})

Acknowledgement

This module is based on Fedor Indutny's sticky-session, but it decouples the worker management logic, enabling you to use any cluster library (such as recluster). The only requirement is that createBalancer needs to be passed activeWorkers, a function that returns a hash containing

  • a field length, the number of worker slots that serve requests
  • for every key 0..length, a field that contains a worker object of a worker that is capable of receiving new connections. If a worker isn't ready at that slot, the field should be null

API

llb.listen(server)

For use from the worker process

Listens for connections from a worker server. The port doesn't need to be specified.

llb.createBalancer(options)

For use from the master process

Creates a new master balancer server that balances between worker servers.

Returns a regular net.Server. Call server.listen(port) to start listening for connections and balancing those connections across the cluster.

The available options are

activeWorkers

A function that returns a hash of the worker slots. For recluster based clusters that would be cluster.activeWorkers. The hash should contain:

  • a field length, the number of worker slots that serve requests
  • for every key 0..length, a field that contains a worker object of a worker that is capable of receiving new connections. If a worker isn't ready at that slot, the field should be null
