IRingbufferTAddAsync Method Hazelcast .Net Client Class Library
Asynchronously writes an item with a configurable OverflowPolicy . If there is space in the ringbuffer, the call will return the sequence of the written item. If there is no space, it depends on the overflow policy what happens:
  1. Overwrite : we just overwrite the oldest item in the ringbuffer and we violate the ttl
  2. Fail : we return -1
The reason that FAIL exist is to give the opportunity to obey the ttl. If blocking behavior is required, this can be implemented using retrying in combination with a exponential backoff. Example:
int sleepMs = 100;
for (; ; ) {
long result = ringbuffer.AddAsync(item, OverflowPolicy.Fail).Result;
if (result != -1) {
break;
}
Thread.Sleep(sleepMs);
sleepMs = Math.Min(5000, sleepMs * 2);
}
