Schedules allow you to define and compose flexible recurrence schedules, which can be used to repeat actions, or retry actions in the event of errors. Schedules are used in the following functions:
IO#repeat— Repeats an effect until the schedule is done.
IO#repeatOrElse— Repeats an effect until the schedule is done, with a fallback for errors.
IO#repeatOrElse0— Repeats an effect until the schedule is done, with a more powerful fallback for errors.
IO#retry– Retries an effect until it succeeds.
IO#retryOrElse— Retries an effect until it succeeds, with a fallback for errors.
IO#retryOrElse0— Retries an effect until it succeeds, with a more powerful fallback for errors.
Schedules define stateful, possibly effectful, recurring schedules of events, and compose in a variety of ways.
Schedule[A, B] consumes input values of type
A (errors in the case of
retry, or values in the case of
repeat), and based on these values and internal state, decides whether to recur or conclude. Every decision is accompanied by a (possibly zero) delay, indicating how much time before the next recurrence, and an output value of type
A schedule that always recurs:
val forever = Schedule.forever
A schedule that never executes:
val never = Schedule.never
A schedule that recurs 10 times:
val upTo10 = Schedule.recurs(10)
A schedule that recurs every 10 milliseconds:
val spaced = Schedule.spaced(10.milliseconds)
A schedule that recurs using exponential backoff:
val exponential = Schedule.exponential(10.milliseconds)
A schedule that recurs using fibonacci backoff:
val fibonacci = Schedule.fibonacci(10.milliseconds)
Applying random jitter to a schedule:
val jitteredExp = Schedule.exponential(10.milliseconds).jittered
Modifies the delay of a schedule:
val boosted = Schedule.spaced(1.second).delayed(_ + 100.milliseconds)
Combines two schedules sequentially, by following the first policy until it ends, and then following the second policy:
val sequential = Schedule.recurs(10) andThen Schedule.spaced(1.second)
Combines two schedules through intersection, by recurring only if both schedules want to recur, using the maximum of the two delays between recurrences:
val expUpTo10 = Schedule.exponential(1.second) && Schedule.recurs(10)
Combines two schedules through union, by recurring if either schedule wants to recur, using the minimum of the two delays between recurrences:
val expCapped = Schedule.exponential(100.milliseconds) || Schedule.spaced(1.second)
