ruote tmp/log_2013-06-27.html

2013-06-27 10:19:03 utc lbt ruote is really quite powerful
2013-06-27 10:19:27 utc lbt haha - I think maybe I'll email this chat to jmettraux
2013-06-27 10:19:37 utc edulix lbt: so, can you tell me a bit more about how to do this federation thing? will it require to launch new ruote instances or something like that? have you got references/examples?
2013-06-27 10:20:05 utc edulix lbt: feel free to do so hehe open channel =)
2013-06-27 10:20:29 utc lbt yeah - john checks ruote_logger which was offline
2013-06-27 10:20:55 utc lbt I think you should start by getting a ruote instance up with AMQP
2013-06-27 10:21:22 utc lbt I wish we had better examples there - I find the ones we have to be a little opaque
2013-06-27 10:21:31 utc lbt sadly I'm not a ruby guy at heart
2013-06-27 10:22:13 utc lbt so the idioms make the code fabulously brief .. but a little ... "what now?"
2013-06-27 10:23:13 utc edulix lbt: hehe yes
2013-06-27 10:23:27 utc edulix lbt: I'm not a ruby guy either, I haven't used it much
2013-06-27 10:23:48 utc lbt ok - so 95% of my ruote code is in python
2013-06-27 10:24:07 utc edulix lbt: how's that possible? I'm more a python guy too haha
2013-06-27 10:24:13 utc lbt I use ruote to handle the messaging/process definition
2013-06-27 10:24:26 utc lbt then the actual "do stuff" is python participants
2013-06-27 10:24:40 utc lbt they listen on amqp, get a json message, decode, reply
2013-06-27 10:24:45 utc lbt wait
2013-06-27 10:25:02 utc lbt they listen on amqp, get a json message, decode, disconnect
2013-06-27 10:25:04 utc lbt then they work
2013-06-27 10:25:11 utc edulix hehe I see
2013-06-27 10:25:14 utc lbt later they connect to amqp and send a reply
2013-06-27 10:25:33 utc lbt later can be weeks or almost instant
2013-06-27 10:26:08 utc lbt so I have python client libraries
2013-06-27 10:26:22 utc edulix btw this is an example of the code I had in mind for the distributed election tally thing
2013-06-27 10:26:26 utc lbt we also use supervisor to manage them
2013-06-27 10:26:53 utc edulix I use also supervisor in my servers =) what's your project about, is this open source?
2013-06-27 10:27:46 utc lbt did you ever hear of MeeGo ?
2013-06-27 10:29:32 utc lbt ACTION assumes a quick google is happening :)
2013-06-27 10:30:00 utc edulix hehe
2013-06-27 10:30:02 utc lbt so meego was a collaboration nokia/intel ... it died. We picked up the parts at
2013-06-27 10:30:21 utc lbt we are now making an entire mobile oriented distro
2013-06-27 10:30:23 utc edulix lbt: of course I have heard of meego, I'm a kde developer (well I haven't done much in some time)
2013-06-27 10:30:44 utc lbt ah - so Mer is all about Qt on mobile
2013-06-27 10:31:00 utc lbt and you may have heard of the Nokia N9 ... and possibly of Jolla
2013-06-27 10:31:43 utc lbt so we use ruote to handle our build/QA processes
2013-06-27 10:31:46 utc edulix sure
2013-06-27 10:31:59 utc lbt yes all open source
2013-06-27 10:32:02 utc edulix yeah, I read something of that in the website of ruote, that got my attention
2013-06-27 10:32:19 utc edulix nice, where's the code? having gone deep into kde source code, I'm not afraid :-P
2013-06-27 10:32:20 utc lbt ACTION is going to akademy too
2013-06-27 10:32:45 utc edulix if you're going then we will even have the chance to see each other in there =)
2013-06-27 10:33:13 utc lbt 11:45 ish "Mer & Qt : What MeeGo Should Have Been!"
2013-06-27 10:33:30 utc lbt yep - please come and say hi
2013-06-27 10:34:42 utc lbt
2013-06-27 10:34:57 utc lbt
2013-06-27 10:36:40 utc lbt so this stuff is developed for use in our project - so not a huge amount of "how to get started"
2013-06-27 10:37:00 utc edulix yeah, no worries =)
2013-06-27 10:37:25 utc edulix lbt: this setup is already kind of federated or this is something you want to do in the future?
2013-06-27 10:38:14 utc lbt I'll permit myself to say kind of
2013-06-27 10:38:36 utc lbt the key thing is that a remote system can launch a process over amqp
2013-06-27 10:39:07 utc lbt and currently it is a way for a participant to say "hey, I'm here"
2013-06-27 10:39:21 utc lbt but that's the key requirement for federation
2013-06-27 10:39:42 utc lbt after all - a remote federated ruote is simply a big participant
2013-06-27 10:40:22 utc edulix nice, I'll then take a look at all this stuff, you've been really helpful
2013-06-27 10:40:39 utc lbt np - I like to evangalise good technology and ruote is really good
2013-06-27 10:41:08 utc lbt you can find me on #mer too
2013-06-27 10:41:42 utc edulix nice, I'll be on the mer talk in akademy for sure =)
2013-06-27 10:42:03 utc lbt if you go ahead there's a lot of discussion about signing, keys and boundaries in messages which I've had thoughts on but no push to implement yet
2013-06-27 10:42:21 utc lbt ok ... l8r then - yell when you get stuck :)
2013-06-27 10:43:26 utc edulix nice, those are things that I have to talk too
2013-06-27 10:43:29 utc edulix =)
2013-06-27 10:58:31 utc jmestral lbt: thanks for the beginning of the chat
2013-06-27 10:59:07 utc lbt hey - no fair - you can't go changing nick on me! :D
2013-06-27 10:59:14 utc jmestral I was just checking if ruote_logger was active and happened to see half of it
2013-06-27 10:59:28 utc jmestral sorry ;-) In Europe right now
2013-06-27 10:59:34 utc jmestral not the usual client
2013-06-27 10:59:38 utc lbt *g*
2013-06-27 11:04:21 utc jmestral lbt: thanks for helping out, much appreciated
2013-06-27 11:06:11 utc lbt np - I tried to get started on a simple amqp install/get started recently but hit some ruby/amqp issues and work just got too heavy - hopefully can get back to it in a few weeks
2013-06-27 11:07:34 utc jmestral :-)
2013-06-27 11:17:46 utc jmestral merphone ftw!
2013-06-27 11:18:13 utc lbt oh yeah - so close now :)
2013-06-27 11:24:11 utc hartog ow, look, conversation!
2013-06-27 11:24:31 utc lbt :P
2013-06-27 11:27:25 utc hartog I have little to add on the conversation; other then that I strongly believed in a centralized orchestrator with decentralized services
2013-06-27 11:28:29 utc jmestral what do you believe now?
2013-06-27 11:29:01 utc hartog ehr ... make that 'believe'
2013-06-27 11:32:25 utc jmestral have a nice day!
2013-06-27 11:32:27 utc jmestral _quit
2013-06-27 11:32:32 utc jmestral \quit
2013-06-27 11:32:40 utc jmestral argh
2013-06-27 17:48:55 utc edulix hello
2013-06-27 17:49:30 utc jmestral hello edulix
2013-06-27 17:50:20 utc edulix what does "centralized orchestrator with decentralized services" mean? :-P
2013-06-27 17:50:41 utc jmestral I think it's very clear
2013-06-27 17:51:49 utc jmestral centralized and decentralized might even be dropped
2013-06-27 17:52:15 utc jmestral orchestration tends to be centralized, else it's coordination
2013-06-27 17:52:44 utc edulix I like that concept, coordination, then
2013-06-27 17:52:59 utc jmestral or should I say choreography
2013-06-27 17:53:10 utc edulix that's better yet =)
2013-06-27 17:53:32 utc edulix is there a way in ruote to limit the number of simultaneous jobs of a kind in an instance?
2013-06-27 17:53:54 utc jmestral yes
2013-06-27 17:54:03 utc edulix like, in a queue?
2013-06-27 17:54:04 utc jmestral it's limited to the number of workers
2013-06-27 17:55:02 utc edulix nice, but the number of workers can be fine tuned for specific "tasks"? like say, "tallying"
2013-06-27 17:55:11 utc jmestral (sorry, my answer might be fuzzy and I don't know what you mean by "job")
2013-06-27 17:56:12 utc jmestral edulix: I saw your work on frestq, why don't you just go on using it?
2013-06-27 17:56:14 utc edulix jmestral: for me a job is something that needs to be done, the "processing of a workitem by a participant", I think it's called
2013-06-27 17:57:06 utc edulix jmestral: oh, because I like standing on the shoulder of others, less code to maintain, more eyeballs etc =) I haven't decided yet though
2013-06-27 17:57:16 utc jmestral ruote hands workitems to participants
2013-06-27 17:57:37 utc jmestral the meego guys have placed AMQP between their "real" participants and ruote
2013-06-27 17:58:21 utc jmestral this "indirection level" can be used to determine what jobs should be done
2013-06-27 17:58:52 utc jmestral other people have built other systems
2013-06-27 17:59:13 utc jmestral pushing workitems to queue/inboxes and having other systems picking up work
2013-06-27 17:59:45 utc jmestral the joys of composing an application
2013-06-27 18:00:03 utc edulix jmestral: that seems more similar to what I was doing with frestq, because it works with "queues"
2013-06-27 18:00:40 utc jmestral tasklists, worklists, inboxes, queues, ...
2013-06-27 18:00:56 utc jmestral ruote doesn't care
2013-06-27 18:01:04 utc jmestral orthogonal
2013-06-27 18:01:38 utc edulix hi chiradeep
2013-06-27 18:03:22 utc jmestral ruote could be have a frestq participant and push tasks to it
