RingyDingy is a little boat that keeps your DRb service afloat! RingyDingy automatically registers a service with a RingServer. If communication between the RingServer and the RingyDingy is lost, RingyDingy will re-register its service with the RingServer when it reappears.
Similarly, the RingServer will automatically drop registrations by a RingyDingy that it can't communicate with after a short timeout.
RingyDingy also includes a RingServer wrapper that adds verbose mode to see what services as they register and expire and an option to list all available services on the network.
Just install the gem:
$ sudo gem install RingyDingy
require 'rubygems' require 'ringy_dingy' require 'my_drb_service' my_drb_service = MyDRbService.new RingyDingy.new(my_drb_service).run DRb.thread.join
To start a RingServer:
To list services on the network:
$ ring_server -l
To enable or disable verbose mode remotely:
$ ring_server --set-logging=true/false
