EngineConfig Class Reference

#include "backend/engine/engine-config.h"


Point of access for any kind of engine configuration, setup and performance tweaks.

Most of these parameters are derived from static system configuration or more focused configuration settings within the session, but some values will be updated live as a result of engine self monitoring. The user of this interface remains unaware of this distinction. There is a sub interface (TODO planned 1/2013) for publishing statistics changes and monitoring information.

while this interface exposes configuration, it is decoupled from any concerns regarding session and configuration representation.

WIP-WIP as of 1/2013

anything regarding configuration and session storage

find out about the degree of locking required. Right now (1/13), there is no locking and all values are hard coded. It is conceivable to implement the access in a lock-free manner (by loosening any guarantee regarding the actual time point when a changed setting becomes visible)

Member Function Documentation

Duration currentEngineLatency ( ) const

reasonable guess of the current engine working delay.

This is the latency to expect when requesting the calculation of a typical and average data frame, based on self observation in the recent past

hard wired value as of 1/2013

Definition at line 73 of file engine-config.cpp.

Duration currentJobPlanningRhythm ( ) const

Time interval for ahead planning of render jobs.

Frame calculation is broken down into individual jobs, and these jobs are prepared and scheduled chunk wise, while they are invoked as late as possible. This setting defines the time span to prepare and cover in a single planning chunk.
