From C++ to Bokeh Server

Hi,
I am running a C++ process and I want to display its output with a bokeh server application.
Ideally, the C++ program would run during the day while sending the updates to the bokeh server. Then, the (bokeh) server sends the data to the client.
My options so far are as follows:
1 [Bad Idea] - After a number of events the c++ program fetch a buffer to a csv file. On the next periodic_callback the bokeh server sees the changes and updates the client.
2 [Ok Idea] - Using ZeroMQ, every second the Bokeh serves asks the c++ program if there is any update. If there is, bokeh server sends to the client.
The idea 2 looks like this:
Bokeh server:
source = some_data
def update_client(new_data):
source.stream(new_data, 100)
#Open ZeroMQ connection:
context = zmq.Context()
socket = context.socket(zmq.REQ)
ip = ‘localhost’
socket.connect(“tcp://”+ip+":5555")
def ask_mzq():
message = socket.recv()
if message is not None:
update_client(message)
#Add a figure to the app
plot = figure()
plot.circle(source=source, x=‘x’, y=‘y’)
curdoc().add_root(plot)
curdoc().add_periodic_callback(ask_mzq, 1000)
QUESTIONS:

  1. Does bokeh has something pre-built for this sort of task?

  2. What would be the most appropriate data structure to send string-like data from a buffer to Python.

We do something similar with the dask.distributed web interface: http://distributed.readthedocs.io/en/latest/web.html

Some extra things you might want to consider:

  1. You could use the PyZMQ event loop to do non-blocking communication. This would play slightly more nicely with Bokeh, which also uses an event loop, although isn’t at all necessary if you’re ok with a very small amount of contention: https://pyzmq.readthedocs.io/en/latest/eventloop.html
  2. As you’ve written it now every session will connect to your c++ server instead of having just one connection. For Dask we do a single connection in the server_lifecycle.py script that populates a globally accessible dictionary of current state and then every session (main.py) periodically checks this global state. This helps reduce communication overhead if you have multiple sessions.
    If you’re looking for examples then Dask’s solution may be of value (although plenty of it is Dask specific):

https://github.com/dask/distributed/blob/master/distributed/bokeh/background/server_lifecycle.py

https://github.com/dask/distributed/blob/master/distributed/bokeh/components.py

https://github.com/dask/distributed/blob/master/distributed/bokeh/status/main.py

For communicating string-like or json-like data I personally use msgpack, which is fairly fast and broadly accessible.

Thank you for the reply.

I was looking at more details of PYZMQ yesterday and I am planning to use to prevent the server to get locked waiting for messages. I may go for that.

Thank you for the example with Dask. Your suggestion is to have a main.py that connects to the c++ code and each bokeh client asks that main.py if there is new data? In this way there would be only one connection to the c++ code.

Did I understand it correctly?

Thank you

Mauricio

Yes, although main.py is used for each web client (of which there are many). The server_lifecycle.py file is where you place code that should run exactly once.

I went back to have a closer look at Dask but I still did not understand how the main.py gets the messages updated by the lifecycle.

Could you walk me through some details?

I see that the periodic_call_back stores the msgs in the distributed.bokeh.messages

But how exactly main.py see those messages? Where are them instantiated?

Thank you for the links again.

We do something similar with the dask.distributed web interface: http://distributed.readthedocs.io/en/latest/web.html

Some extra things you might want to consider:

  1. You could use the PyZMQ event loop to do non-blocking communication. This would play slightly more nicely with Bokeh, which also uses an event loop, although isn’t at all necessary if you’re ok with a very small amount of contention: https://pyzmq.readthedocs.io/en/latest/eventloop.html
  2. As you’ve written it now every session will connect to your c++ server instead of having just one connection. For Dask we do a single connection in the server_lifecycle.py script that populates a globally accessible dictionary of current state and then every session (main.py) periodically checks this global state. This helps reduce communication overhead if you have multiple sessions.
    If you’re looking for examples then Dask’s solution may be of value (although plenty of it is Dask specific):

https://github.com/dask/distributed/blob/master/distributed/bokeh/background/server_lifecycle.py

https://github.com/dask/distributed/blob/master/distributed/bokeh/components.py

https://github.com/dask/distributed/blob/master/distributed/bokeh/status/main.py

For communicating string-like or json-like data I personally use msgpack, which is fairly fast and broadly accessible.

Hi,
I am running a C++ process and I want to display its output with a bokeh server application.
Ideally, the C++ program would run during the day while sending the updates to the bokeh server. Then, the (bokeh) server sends the data to the client.
My options so far are as follows:
1 [Bad Idea] - After a number of events the c++ program fetch a buffer to a csv file. On the next periodic_callback the bokeh server sees the changes and updates the client.
2 [Ok Idea] - Using ZeroMQ, every second the Bokeh serves asks the c++ program if there is any update. If there is, bokeh server sends to the client.
The idea 2 looks like this:
Bokeh server:
source = some_data
def update_client(new_data):
source.stream(new_data, 100)
#Open ZeroMQ connection:
context = zmq.Context()
socket = context.socket(zmq.REQ)
ip = ‘localhost’
socket.connect(“tcp://”+ip+":5555")
def ask_mzq():
message = socket.recv()
if message is not None:
update_client(message)
#Add a figure to the app
plot = figure()
plot.circle(source=source, x=‘x’, y=‘y’)
curdoc().add_root(plot)
curdoc().add_periodic_callback(ask_mzq, 1000)
QUESTIONS:

  1. Does bokeh has something pre-built for this sort of task?

  2. What would be the most appropriate data structure to send string-like data from a buffer to Python.
