== About

Socket#set_accept_filter allows you to enable accept filters on
server sockets.

In FreeBSD accept filters allow you to delay the return from an accept
() call
until enough data arrives on the connection for processing avoiding
extra
context switches while waiting for the missing data.

Consult the accf_data(9), accf_http(9) and accept_filter(9) man pages
for
further details.

== Installing socket_accept_filter

Run FreeBSD (or any BSD, I think).

Then install the gem:

$ sudo gem install socket_accept_filter

== Using socket_accept_filter

=== Regular sockets

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘socket’
require ‘socket_accept_filter’

server = TCPServer.new host, port
server.set_accept_filter ‘dataready’

Then use the server socket as you would ordinarily.

=== WEBrick

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘socket’
require ‘socket_accept_filter’
require ‘webrick’

class MyServer < WEBrick::HTTPServer

 def listen(*args)
   super

   @listeners.each do |server|
     server.set_accept_filter 'httpready'
   end
 end

end

Then use MyServer where you would ordinarily use WEBrick::HTTPServer.
