[zeromq-dev] zmqstream with req socket only sends the first message

Calling send on the zmqstream from another thread doesn’t properly tell the
IOLoop thread that there’s an event to process. This could call small
delays if the IOLoop is already processing lots of events, but it can cause
the message to never send if the zmq socket is the only one it’s handling.

You want your ZmqREQConnection.send to hand off the stream.send to the
IOLoop’s thread via IOLoop.add_callback:

def send(self, *args, **kwargs):
    print("Sending message to backend: (%s, %s)" % (args, kwargs))
    self._ioloop.add_callback(lambda : self._stream.send(*args, **kwargs))

Hello, zmq community.

I’m trying to use a pyzmq’s zmqstream with a REQ socket to talk to a txzmq
socket, but only the first message is ever sent and received back.

REQ pyzmq endpoint code: http://paste.debian.net/143615/
REP txzmq endpoint code: http://paste.debian.net/143617/

I would expect that all the messages would be sent. Am I missing something

If I let some requests accumulate, and then start the server, all the
accumulated requests are replied, but the new ones are not sent.

If I replace the REQ endpoint by a pure pyzmq version with no zmqstream or
ioloop, it works fine (http://paste.debian.net/143619/).

Anyone can give some light on this?

Thanks a lot!
