Parallel starting / stopping of components

Added by R. Haschke almost 7 years ago

Previous approach didn't allow for truly parallel starting of components.
Also, the level order was not considered when manually starting several groups in parallel.
The new fully event-based scheme, should resolve those issues. Please report any open issues.

Attention: The remark from previous change still holds true:
Before, components were started in given order, -w option specifying to wait for a component before proceeding to the next.
Now, all components on the same level are started in parallel. -w option simply states the timeout period, before we give up to wait for this component to be ready.

New branch 0.5

Added by R. Haschke almost 9 years ago

  • allow for parallel starting / stopping of components at same level
    different levels are handled consecutively
  • even different groups can be started / stopped in parallel
  • individual components start / stop in between too
  • start / stop within same group conflicts with each other -> cancel a running command
  • gui feedback on group commands
  • removed level command buttons
  • removed obsolete -c option: components are checked in 1s intervals at most
    time required for checking, adds on top of this
  • option -w defaults to 5s (timeout for successful component start)

If you observe strange start order, check your levels!

New branch 0.4 created

Added by N. Köster about 9 years ago

We released a new version branch "0.4" and added a version tag called "v0.4.0".

Besides multiple bugfixes, we added a new feature: Organizing components using tabs! This is especially helpful when dealing with multiple components of various types. See the wiki for details.

New branch 0.3 created

Added by J. Wienke almost 10 years ago

Since we are planning to incorporate some new features in the master version, we have created a 0.3 branch to freeze the current state and master has been pushed to 0.4.
