Asyncio: cancel a set of coroutines from another coroutine, by stopping the event loop
"""Example to cancel a set of asyncio coroutines (futures),
using one coroutine to signal the event loop to stop.
import asyncio
import logging
from datetime import datetime
from concurrent.futures import CancelledError
def poll(incr=1):
"""A continuous coroutine."""
i = 0
while True:
print("Polling at {} seconds.".format(i))
i += incr
yield from asyncio.sleep(incr)
def stop(duration):
"""The coroutine to listen for signal to stop the event loop."""
# In practice, a signal of sorts (e.g., through a TCP socket) may
# be send here to indicate a full stop
yield from asyncio.sleep(duration)
# Alternatively, one can raise an Exception and use
# `return_when=asyncio.FIRST_EXCEPTION` in `asyncio.wait`.
def main():
loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
# For Python 3.4.4, use `ensure_future` instead of `async` below
tasks = [asyncio.async(poll(2)),
finished, pending = loop.run_until_complete(
asyncio.wait(tasks, return_when=asyncio.FIRST_COMPLETED))
logging.debug(">> Finished: {}", finished)
logging.debug(">> Pending: {}", pending)
# Cancel the remaining tasks
for task in pending:"Cancelling %s: %s", task, task.cancel())
except CancelledError: # Any other exception would be bad
for task in pending:
logging.debug("Cancelled %s: %s", task, task.cancelled())
# Stop and clean up
