#809 plume-model: refactor Searcher to have its own DbPool

Closed
igalic wants to merge 6 commits from igalic/Plume:refactor/extract-searcher-with-dbpool into main
igalic commented 3 months ago

This PR is another attempt at fixing #799

Instead of relying on a separate actor model, as described, we make use of the fact that DbPool is an Arc, and can be arbitrarily cloned, so we add it to Searcher. Further more, and db_pool.get() acts like sending a message to an Actor: if there are enough connections, the Pool gives us one, if not, tough luck!

this way, we don’t need to pass along a conn into the searcher functions.
This should make splitting PlumeRocket up into its components a little easier.

I would prefer using ? instead of unwrap here.

can you briefly explain why?

we use .unwrap() in all other lines.

I think all the previous ones are safe: we now it can’t panic because we control the search index schema, we know that these fields exist (even if Rust can’t check this at comoile-time). Here, we may fail to get a DB connection from the pool for whatever reason, and I think we should make the error “go up”, so that the web UI or the CLI can display a proper error.

you’re not trying to convert the original diesel::r2d2::Error?

It is a r2d2::Error, not the same as Diesel’s one apparently. And I don’t want to add another direct dependency in our Cargo.toml.

why are we returning Arc<Self>?
this means our code needs to know exactly how it’s going to be used

what about cli? does that use an Arc?

i would use this function to only return a Self
there’s no need to init_pool, we just want a copy

we can create an initialize method, which tries to call open and create methods in the appropriate order with the error recovery, if that makes sense here

but as it stands, for a new function, this does too much
