class IPython.parallel.controller.heartmonitor.Heart(in_addr, out_addr, mon_addr=None, in_type=2, out_type=5, mon_type=1, heart_id=None)

Bases: object

A basic heart object for responding to a HeartMonitor. This is a simple wrapper with defaults for the most common Device model for responding to heartbeats.

It simply builds a threadsafe zmq.FORWARDER Device, defaulting to using SUB/DEALER for in/out.

You can specify the DEALER’s IDENTITY via the optional heart_id argument.
