Common Utilities.

class kombu.common.Broadcast(name=None, queue=None, unique=False, auto_delete=True, exchange=None, alias=None, **kwargs)[source]

Broadcast queue.

Convenience class used to define broadcast queues.

Every queue instance will have a unique name, and both the queue and exchange is configured with auto deletion.


name (str): This is used as the name of the exchange. queue (str): By default a unique id is used for the queue

name for every consumer. You can specify a custom queue name here.

unique (bool): Always create a unique queue

even if a queue name is supplied.

**kwargs (Any): See Queue for a list

of additional keyword arguments supported.

attrs: tuple[tuple[str, Any], ...] = (('name', None), ('exchange', None), ('routing_key', None), ('queue_arguments', None), ('binding_arguments', None), ('consumer_arguments', None), ('durable', <class 'bool'>), ('exclusive', <class 'bool'>), ('auto_delete', <class 'bool'>), ('no_ack', None), ('alias', None), ('bindings', <class 'list'>), ('no_declare', <class 'bool'>), ('expires', <class 'float'>), ('message_ttl', <class 'float'>), ('max_length', <class 'int'>), ('max_length_bytes', <class 'int'>), ('max_priority', <class 'int'>), ('queue', None))
kombu.common.collect_replies(conn, channel, queue, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Generator collecting replies from queue.

kombu.common.drain_consumer(consumer, limit=1, timeout=None, callbacks=None)[source]

Drain messages from consumer instance.

kombu.common.eventloop(conn, limit=None, timeout=None, ignore_timeouts=False)[source]

Best practice generator wrapper around Connection.drain_events.

Able to drain events forever, with a limit, and optionally ignoring timeout errors (a timeout of 1 is often used in environments where the socket can get “stuck”, and is a best practice for Kombu consumers).

eventloop is a generator.


>>> from kombu.common import eventloop
>>> def run(conn):
...     it = eventloop(conn, timeout=1, ignore_timeouts=True)
...     next(it)   # one event consumed, or timed out.
...     for _ in eventloop(conn, timeout=1, ignore_timeouts=True):
...         pass  # loop forever.

It also takes an optional limit parameter, and timeout errors are propagated by default:

for _ in eventloop(connection, limit=1, timeout=1):
kombu.common.insured(pool, fun, args, kwargs, errback=None, on_revive=None, **opts)[source]

Function wrapper to handle connection errors.

Ensures function performing broker commands completes despite intermittent connection failures.

kombu.common.itermessages(conn, channel, queue, limit=1, timeout=None, callbacks=None, **kwargs)[source]

Iterator over messages.

kombu.common.maybe_declare(entity, channel=None, retry=False, **retry_policy)[source]

Declare entity (cached).

kombu.common.send_reply(exchange, req, msg, producer=None, retry=False, retry_policy=None, **props)[source]

Send reply for request.


exchange (kombu.Exchange, str): Reply exchange req (~kombu.Message): Original request, a message with

a reply_to property.

producer (kombu.Producer): Producer instance retry (bool): If true must retry according to

the reply_policy argument.

retry_policy (Dict): Retry settings. **props (Any): Extra properties.

kombu.common.uuid(_uuid: ~typing.Callable[[], ~uuid.UUID] = <function uuid4>) str[source]

Generate unique id in UUID4 format.
