I observer dobule the throughput with high concurrent file streaming.
I tried with 12core and 2048 connections.
I also found some tips to optimize the performance on system side. Like make the memlock setting bigger. disable cpu mitigation. and use newest kernel release. Right now 5.15-rc could be the fastest for io-uring. I recall earlier some people claim to achieve a new peak of IOPS using it.

BTW I have not tested it on regular hard drive but I believe the best use case for it is at least a decent nvme ssd.

Quick question: the actix docs for "shared mutable state" (here) suggest to use a Mutex from std::sync to make types thread-safe. This seems like it could be problematic since Mutex can block the current thread.

I don't know much about the internals of Actix. Is this just not a problem?

Is there some utility function to url (percent) encode/decode strings ? I'd not pull in another crate if actix_web has one already.

Quick question, I am doing some monitoring of my server which doesn't really have state. One thing I am finding is that my virtual memory usage is pretty high. I was wondering if anyone has some insight into this or has come across this in anyway? Using actix-web 4.0.0.beta

Hello, I try to write a function that returns an App instance this is usefull for my integration tests.

I used the extract into method, function i my ide to get the function declaration.
This is what I got:

pub fn construct_app() -> App<impl ServiceFactory<Request=ServiceRequest, Response=ServiceResponse<StreamLog<_>>, Error=Error, Config=(), Service=_, InitError=(), Future=_>, StreamLog<_>> {
    let pool = application_config.pg.create_pool(NoTls).unwrap();

    let cors = Cors::permissive();

    let app = App::new()
        .wrap(
            middleware::DefaultHeaders::new()
                .header("Access-Control-Allow-Origin", "*")
                .header("Access-Control-Allow-Headers", "*"))
        .wrap(cors)
        .wrap(Logger::default())
        .service(hosts::all_hosts)
        .service(hosts::new_host)
        .service(hosts::get_host_by_id)
        .service(hosts::save_host)
        .service(hosts::delete_host)
        .service(ips::list)
        .service(ips::list_networks)
        .service(macs::list)
        .data(pool.clone());

    return app;
}

Now rust cant resolve ServiceFactory and even if I add this dependency (what I don't want) other parameter are missing as well.
What are the actual type that would be returned I onestly don't know how to figure that out, or is there another way to do this.
Can you guys help me?

I am storing the data entered by the user in app_data. As long as I was working on a local machine and the application was only testing 1 user everything was fine. But after deploying the app https://polar-journey-32537.herokuapp.com/ I found that ALL users save their data to the same structure inside app_data. Data from different users is mixed in one structure. (The year of birth of one user is added to the month of birth of the other user, and so on). How can I provide each user with their personal .app_data or their personal structure in app_data? Perhaps my question is amateurish, but I'm new to programming. Here is my code: .app_data (web :: Data :: new (Mutex :: new (UserInputData :: new ())). сlone ())

Hi, I have a question. I'm using #[post] macro to generate register endpoint. Is it possible to somehow alias this endpoint with different path?

For example:

#[post("/a/path"]
fn test() -> impl Responser {
  "Ok"
}

I'd like to have this test function also exposed as /b/another/path. Is it possible?

Hi all, I wrote these small piece of testing code to get access to the internal web:Data<T>:

#[actix_web::test]
    async fn test_crawl_does_get_root_page_links() {
        let set: HashSet<Url> = HashSet::default();
        let (server, port) = spawn_server(set).unwrap();
        let client = reqwest::Client::default();
        let response = client
            .get(format!("http://localhost:{}/", port))
            .send()
            .await
            .expect("Failed to execute the request");
        assert_eq!(response.text().await.unwrap(), root_body(&port));
        server.stop(false).await;
    }

    fn spawn_server(set: HashSet<Url>) -> Result<(Server, u16), std::io::Error> {
        let (server, port) = run_server(set).unwrap();
        let _ = tokio::spawn(server.clone());
        Ok((server, port))
    }

    fn run_server(set: HashSet<Url>) -> Result<(Server, u16), std::io::Error> {
        let listener = TcpListener::bind("localhost:0").expect("Failed to bind to random port");
        let port = listener.local_addr().unwrap().port();
        let server = HttpServer::new(move || {
            App::new()
                .app_data(web::Data::new(set.clone()))
                .app_data(web::Data::new(port.clone()))
                .wrap_fn(|request, server| {
                    let app_state = request.app_data::<web::Data<HashSet<Url>>>();
                    let s = app_state.unwrap().get_ref();
                    println!("{}", s.len());
                    let fut = server.call(request);
                    async move {
                        let response = fut.await.unwrap();
                        Ok(response)
                    }
                })
                .wrap_fn(|request, server| {
                    let fut = server.call(request);
                    async move {
                        let response = fut.await.unwrap();
                        Ok(response)
                    }
                })
                .route("/", web::get().to(root_page))
        })
        .listen(listener)?
        .run();

        Ok((server, port))
    }

The idea was to have two of these wrapped middleware running, with the first registered running last and thus containing the modifications of the first request, which doesn't do any modifications. However, I do not understand how this is supposed to work. Once the outer layer has run, I have a response. The inner layer doesn't know anything about this response and creates a response on its own. I am sure it is my understanding that is lacking, could someone explain to me how I get these to middlewares chained? Maybe the whole idea is flawed, but it is my first success to actually access web:Data<T> from a unit test. I am open to any suggestions ;-)

I'd like to add the actual main code has the HashSet wrapped in a structure and with a Mutex around. I thought just for testing if the hashset is actually filled I leave this out for now. My question is around the chaining of middleware with clousres.

@kodieg I don't have a solution for this, but have you tried to expand the macro? IntelliJ can do it, and so I think can VSCode but it is a cargo subcommand you can install, instructions are here: https://github.com/dtolnay/cargo-expand

actix-files has the Files server. How can I restrict the path to leave same "sandboxed" directory (ex to avoid requests like ../../etc/passwd) ?
Johannes-Maria Frank
@jmfrank63
@gzp-crey Huh? That is possible? Have you tried it? From the look at the documentation, it seems to me as if the path is canonicalized, so this shouldn't be possible. If you are concerned, however, and want a real sandbox, you could always run the single binary rust compiles to in a chroot environment, a well-known technique for ages.

Hi. I am planning to create subdomain system with actix-web. I dont how i handle it but my plan is, creating web server forevery subdomain, every one of them will use actix-redis session middleware. Are they will use the same session data or, do i have find another way?
for example, like google apps?
robjtede
@robjtede:matrix.org
[m]

if they're connected to the same backend redis server then the auth with work across domains (assuming the cookies are set up correctly)

for subdomains, there is a Host guard (see docs) which would allow you to use the same AW server for multiple subdomains

otherwise, if you want to use separate servers, then a reverse proxy set up with Traefik or Nginx is a good route to explore

Hey guys,
I am trying to use SSE (server send events) with code below
when browser try to subscribe, it is just stuck till timeout. (req timeout)

#[get("/events")]
async fn event( broadcaster: web::Data<Mutex<Broadcaster>>) -> impl Responder {
    println!("enter events locking broadcaster"); 
    let mut map : HashMap<String, String> = HashMap::new();
    map.insert("status".to_string() , "connected".to_string());
    let rx = broadcaster.lock().unwrap().new_client( map );
    println!("add newclient");

    HttpResponse::Ok()
    .header("content-type", "text/event-stream")
    // .no_chunking(64)
    .streaming(rx)
}

I trace it, it reach HttpResponse::Ok and stuck there
I wonder if the no_chunking is required?

May be mostly dumb question.

if I want to achieve organizations/{id}/providers/{id} url. Then I need to add providers config on organizations/{id} web scope ? or I am thinking completely wrong ?

Also sorry for the dumb question but I'd the actix-web creates the workers according to the logical cpus does it leave one for it "main thread" execution?

Sick! Is that the reason why it doesn't spawn n-1 threads because the main one is mostly idle? In my mind I was thinking maybe it wants to leave a thread for itself but if it mostly idle then that is fine I think

What would be better option if I need something like actor system (for logical separation not performance)? Actix actors or Tokio message channel. Tokio is already included in actix-web but actix actors needed to be added as separate package. AFAIK.
