Subject RE: How to have a server manage sub-processes?
Date Mon, 30 Jan 2012 15:46:28 GMT
I didn't see any supported way to add my file descriptors to thrift, get thrift to (non-destructively)
timeout from read, or export thrift file descriptors to an external select/poll (the latter
seems possible, it just doesn't look "supported").

Am I missing something?  I'm new to thrift, so I'm still learning about it.

Hi Dan,

Unless I have missed something since we froze the Thrift version we use, this really has nothing
to do with Thrift. Thrift uses posix to implement its internal scheduler, but you are not
limited by that at all. (You certainly don't need to use the Thrift scheduler.) We use boost
threads in our code.
