DESCRIPTION

ns_after

run the specified script or procedure after the specified number of seconds

ns_after returns an id which can be used with the ns_pause, ns_cancel and ns_resume apis.

ns_cancel

stops the scheduled running of the id returned by an ns_after

returns 1 if unscheduled 0 if the script of procedure couldn't be unscheduled

ns_pause

pauses the scheduled running of the id returned by an ns_after

returns 1 if paused, 0 if the script of procedure couldn't be paused

ns_resume

resumes the scheduled running of the id returned by an ns_after

returns 1 if resumed, 0 if the script of procedure couldn't be resumed

ns_schedule_daily

ns_schedule_daily runs the specified Tcl script or procedure (procname) once a day at the time specified by hour and minute. The hour can be from 0 to 23, and the minute can be from 0 to 59.

Specify -thread if you want a thread created to run the procedure. This will allow the scheduler to continue with other scheduled procedures. Specifying -thread is appropriate in situations where the script will not return immediately, such as when the script performs network activity.

Specify -once if you want the script to run only one time. The default is that the script will be re-scheduled after each time it is run.

ns_schedule_daily returns an id number for the scheduled procedure that is needed to stop the scheduled procedure with ns_unschedule_proc.

ns_schedule_proc

ns_schedule_proc runs the specified Tcl script or procedure (procname) at an interval specified by interval. The interval is the number of seconds between runs of the script.

Specify -thread if you want a thread created to run the procedure. This will allow the scheduler to continue with other scheduled procedures. Specifying -thread is appropriate in situations where the script will not return immediately, such as when the script performs network activity.

Specify -once if you want the script to run only one time. The default is that the script will be re-scheduled after each time it is run.

ns_schedule_proc returns an id number for the scheduled procedure that is needed to stop the scheduled procedure with ns_unschedule_proc.

ns_schedule_weekly
ns_schedule_weekly runs the specified Tcl script or procedure (procname) once a week on the day specified by day and the time specified by hour and minute. The day can be from 0 to 6, where 0 represents Sunday. The hour can be from 0 to 23, and the minute can be from 0 to 59.

Specify -thread if you want a thread created to run the procedure. This will allow the scheduler to continue with other scheduled procedures. Specifying -thread is appropriate in situations where the script will not return immediately, such as when the script performs network activity.

Specify -once if you want the script to run only one time. The default is that the script will be re-scheduled after each time it is run.

ns_schedule_weekly returns an id number for the scheduled procedure that is needed to stop the scheduled procedure with ns_unschedule_proc.

ns_unschedule_proc id

ns_unschedule_proc stops a scheduled procedure from executing anymore. The scheduled procedure to be stopped is identified by its id, which was returned by the ns_schedule* function that was used to schedule the procedure.

EXAMPLES

ns_after ns_cancel ns_pause ns_resume
This example illustrates a web interface used to manage jobs. Depending on the action provided a job can be created, cancelled, paused or resumed.

set action [ns_queryget action]
set job [ns_queryget job]
switch $action {
    create {
        set job [ns_after 10 [ns_queryget script]]
        ns_puts "Job created with id: $job"
    }
    cancel {
        if {[ns_cancel $job]} {
            ns_puts "Job $job cancelled"
        } else {
            ns_puts "Job $job not cancelled"
        }
    }
    pause {
        if {[ns_pause $job]} {
            ns_puts "Job $job paused"
        } else {
            ns_puts "Job $job not paused
        }
    }
    resume {
        if {[ns_resume $job]} {
            ns_puts "Job $job resumed"
        } else {
            ns_puts "Job $job couldn't be resumed"
        }
    }
    default {
        ns_puts "Invalid action $action"
    }
}

ns_schedule_daily

This example defines a script called rolllog that uses ns_accesslog to roll the access log to a file with an extension containing the current date. The ns_schedule_daily function is used to execute the rolllog script on a daily basis.


# Script to roll and rcp log file to host "grinder" proc rolllog {} { set suffix [ns_strftime "%y-%m-%d"] set new [ns_accesslog file].$suffix ns_accesslog roll $new exec rcp $new grinder:/logs/[file tail $new] } # Schedule "rolllog" to run at 3:30 am each morning ns_schedule_daily -thread 3 30 rolllog
