Rather than flushing and resizing after each row is written to the
file, have the file object iterate by itself and do all of the
writes. Only flush and resize the mmap after finishing. This should
be pretty safe to do, especially since nothing is concurrent at the
This is a pretty big change that will render existing clients unable
to modify the database, but it's important that we use POST or PUT
instead of GET for anything that may change state, in case this
is ever put behind a cache.
PUTs generate a "HTTP/1.1 100 Continue" response before the
"HTTP/1.1 200 OK" response, and so we were mistakenly picking up
the 100 status code and not returning any data. Improve the
header callback to correctly process any number of status codes.
These functions can now take an object or a type (class).
If given an object, they will wrap subsequent calls to that object.
If given a type, they will return an object that can be instantiated
to create a new object, and all calls including __init__ will be
covered by the serialization or thread verification.
Occasional segfaults may be the result of performing thread-unsafe
operations. This class decorator verifies that all of its methods
are called in a thread-safe manner.
It can separately warn about:
- two threads calling methods in a function (the kind of thing sqlite
- concurrency (two different threads functions at the same time)
This decorator makes a class always be serialized, including its
instantiation, in a separate thread. This is an improvement over
the old Serializer() object wrapper, which didn't put the
instantiation into the new thread.
