Goroutine pool -- ants

·435 words·3 mins

📖 Introduction #

GitHub #

Library ants implements a goroutine pool with fixed capacity, managing and recycling a massive number of goroutines, allowing developers to limit the number of goroutines in your concurrent programs.

🚀 Features: #

  • Managing and recycling a massive number of goroutines automatically
  • Purging overdue goroutines periodically
  • Abundant APIs: submitting tasks, getting the number of running goroutines, tuning the capacity of the pool dynamically, releasing the pool, rebooting the pool
  • Handle panic gracefully to prevent programs from crash
  • Efficient in memory usage and it even achieves higher performance than unlimited goroutines in Golang
  • Nonblocking mechanism
