Package configsource is an experimental package that defines the interface of "configuration sources," e.g., Vault, ZooKeeper, etcd2, and others. Configuration sources retrieve values from their respective storages. A configuration parser/loader can inject these values in the configuration data used by the collector. ATTENTION: the package is still experimental and subject to changes without advanced notice.

var ErrSessionClosed = errors.New("parent session was closed")

ErrSessionClosed is returned by WatchForUpdate functions when its parent Session object is closed. This error can be wrapped with additional information. Callers trying to identify this specific error must use errors.Is.

View Source
var ErrValueUpdated = errors.New("configuration must retrieve the updated value")

ErrValueUpdated is returned by WatchForUpdate functions when the value being watched was changed or expired and needs to be retrieved again. This error can be wrapped with additional information. Callers trying to identify this specific error must use errors.Is.

View Source
var ErrWatcherNotSupported = errors.New("value watcher is not supported")

ErrWatcherNotSupported is returned by WatchForUpdate functions when the configuration source can't watch for updates on the value. This error can be wrapped with additional information. Callers trying to identify this specific error must use errors.Is.

type ConfigSource

type ConfigSource interface {
	// NewSession must create a Session object that will be used to retrieve data to
	// be injected into a configuration.
	// The Session object should use its creation according to their ConfigSource needs:
	// lock resources, open connections, etc. An implementation, for instance,
	// can use the creation of the Session object to prevent torn configurations,
	// by acquiring a lock (or some other mechanism) that prevents concurrent changes to the
	// configuration during time that data is being retrieved from the source.
	// The code managing the returned Session object must guarantee that the object is not used
	// concurrently and that a single ConfigSource only have one Session open at any time.
	NewSession(ctx context.Context) (Session, error)

ConfigSource is the interface to be implemented by objects used by the collector to retrieve external configuration information.

type Retrieved

type Retrieved interface {
	// Value is the retrieved data that will be injected on the configuration.
	Value() interface{}

	// WatchForUpdate is used to monitor for updates on the retrieved value.
	// If a watcher is not supported by the configuration store in general or for the specific
	// retrieved value the WatchForUpdate must immediately return ErrWatcherNotSupported or
	// an error wrapping it.
	// When watching is supported WatchForUpdate must not return until one of the following happens:
	// 1. An update is detected for the monitored value. In this case the function should
	//    return ErrValueUpdated or an error wrapping it.
	// 2. The parent Session object is closed, in which case the method should return
	//    ErrSessionClosed or an error wrapping it.
	// 3. An error happens while watching for updates. The method should not return
	//    on first instances of transient errors, optionally there should be
	//    configurable thresholds to control for how long such errors can be ignored.
	// This method must only be called when the RetrieveEnd method of the Session that
	// retrieved the value was successfully completed.
	WatchForUpdate() error

Retrieved holds the result of a call to the Retrieve method of a Session object.

type Session

type Session interface {
	// Retrieve goes to the configuration source and retrieves the selected data which
	// contains the value to be injected in the configuration and the corresponding watcher that
	// will be used to monitor for updates of the retrieved value. The retrieved value is selected
	// according to the selector and the params passed in the call to Retrieve.
	// The selector is a string that is required on all invocations, the params are optional. Each
	// implementation handles the generic params according to their requirements.
	Retrieve(ctx context.Context, selector string, params interface{}) (Retrieved, error)

	// RetrieveEnd signals that the Session must not be used to retrieve any new values from the
	// source, ie.: all values from this source were retrieved for the configuration. It should
	// be used to release resources that are only needed to retrieve configuration data.
	RetrieveEnd(ctx context.Context) error

	// Close signals that the configuration for which it was used to retrieve values is no longer in use
	// and the object should close and release any watchers that it may have created.
	// This method must be called when the configuration session ends, either in case of success
	// or error. Each Session object should use this call according to their needs: release resources,
	// close communication channels, etc.
	Close(ctx context.Context) error

Session is the interface used to retrieve configuration data from a ConfigSource. A Session object is created from a ConfigSource. The code using Session objects must guarantee that methods of a single instance are not called concurrently.
