Class BackoffJobAcquisitionStrategy

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class BackoffJobAcquisitionStrategy
    extends Object
    implements JobAcquisitionStrategy

    Determines the number of jobs to acquire and the time to wait between acquisition cycles by an exponential backoff strategy.

    Manages two kinds of backoff times:

    • idle time: Wait for a certain amount of time when no jobs are available
    • backoff time: Wait for a certain amount of time when jobs are available but could not successfully be acquired
    Both times are calculated by applying an exponential backoff. This means, when the respective conditions repeatedly hold, the time increases exponentially from one acquisition cycle to the next.

    This implementation manages idle and backoff time in terms of levels. The initial backoff level is 0, meaning that no backoff is applied. In case the condition for increasing backoff applies, the backoff level is incremented. The actual time to wait is then computed as follows

    timeToWait = baseBackoffTime * (backoffFactor ^ (backoffLevel - 1))

    Accordingly, the maximum possible backoff level is

    maximumLevel = floor( log( backoffFactor, maximumBackoffTime / baseBackoffTime) ) + 1
    (where log(a, b) is the logarithm of b to the base of a)
