CORBA3 — Avoiding Interceptors for colocated method requests

  • Key: CORBA3-62
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5296
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Ann Collins)
  • Summary:

    Could we please discuss the possibility of introducing a performance
    optimization for Interceptors.

    There may be considerable overhead involved in invoking Portable
    Interceptors. While some interceptors need to be invoked when caller
    and target are colocated (the locally optimized path), many do not.
    I think it would be useful to introduce a mechanism to allow this
    unnecessary overhead to be avoided for interceptors that do not need
    to be invoked on the colocated path, for example by adding a
    'run_local' parameter to the add_xxx_request_interceptor methods of
    the ORBInitInfo interface.

    I realise that this issue was touched upon during discussion of interop
    issue 4291 but, at the time, the focus was on getting the interceptor
    mechanism to work correctly in the colocated case; the performance
    aspect of the issue seems to have been lost.
