Revision 01eea342


Added by Iustin Pop over 11 years ago

Change the polling thread sleep behaviour

Currently, the polling thread sleeps at the end of its body; the
original reason was that when the thread initially starts, we want to
load the config immediately (in the old-style config load model).

However, now we explicitly load the config, so we can make this thread
behave like the watcher thread: sleep first, then do the work. This
model improves for example the startup of the thread, by not redoing a
config check immediately after switching to polling mode.

We also increase the max idle poll rounds interval from 2 to 3; the
new behaviour means that we revert from polling to inotify after
around one second of no changes.
