It seems that I was ignorant about how to run those samples. The instructions given on Github wiki pages are not sufficient. I somehow figured out that I need to run "WebCrawler.CrawlService" and "WebCrawler.TrackingService" along with the "WebCrawler.Web" app and "Lighthouse" app
so I've just discovered that actors are created asynchronously (when ActorOf call completes my actor isn't guaranteed to have been ctor'd). Is there a way to control that, and also presumably if I send a message to an uncreated actor the message will be buffered untli it is created?
Hi! The simplest dummest question of the entire book I guess, but I have a use case where I have to correlate two message, but those message means data I cannot affort to loose. For this particular use case, one of the message knows (have and ID) the correlation with the second, but the second can be either never correlated with anyone, or correlated with one of the first one.
The first message is an actor how tries to reach the second if is available, second can arrive after first arrived, thus the first one is in charge of search for the second one. But actor for first need to be started even if a node crash. So my question is, how can achieve high availability on the even of a failure in one or more nodes in my cluster??
Thank you all in advance.
@Horusiath If I want to contribute in cluster tools and cluster sharding, where will be in the code a good start for reading and getting the sense of it?
concerning Akka.Cluster.Tools and Akka.Cluster.Sharding - most (if not all) of the code is already ported, but I need to make multinode test runner specs working. If you want to help a little, I can try to find something, that could interest you. Just give me a while to reorganize the code ;)
akka.net spec suite have so many races and it's so resource consuming, that I want to tell xUnit guys to build their test runner on top of akka.net, so that their runner will finally stop failing from pressure we generate
Anybody else running on Windows using Akka.Remoting having runtime exception where specific google.protobuf ver 521 is required? (nuget restores latest - 555)? Works at home under mono. Just breaks at work...
@feanor41 if you want to play a little with the Akka.Cluster.Tools, take a look at PR #1408 - under Examples/Cluster/ClusterTools you can find projects with samples for each of the 3 major features:
cluster distributed pub/sub mechanim
cluster client -> this one to be better visible will require to set .Node project actor ref provider to RemoteActorRefProvider, while keeping .Seed actor ref provider to ClusterActorRefProvider (the purpose is to show that non-cluster actor system is able to call cluster itself)
@kelly-cliffe you can manage this using assembly bindings in your app.config file
