Activities for leaving with some probability, or for setting or unsetting a timer or a signal after which the arrival will abandon.

leave(.trj, prob, out = NULL, keep_seized = TRUE)

renege_in(.trj, t, out = NULL, keep_seized = FALSE)

renege_if(.trj, signal, out = NULL, keep_seized = FALSE)




the trajectory object.


a probability or a function returning a probability.


optional sub-trajectory in case of reneging.


whether to keep already seized resources. By default, all resources are released.


timeout to trigger reneging, accepts either a numeric or a callable object (a function) which must return a numeric.


signal to trigger reneging, accepts either a string or a callable object (a function) which must return a string.


Returns the trajectory object.


Arrivals that leave the trajectory will set the finished flag to FALSE in the output of get_mon_arrivals. Unfinished arrivals can be handled with a drop-out trajectory that can be set using the optional argument out or the handle_unfinished activity.

Note that, for historical reasons, leave has keep_seized=TRUE by default, while renege_* does not.

Note that renege_if works similarly to trap, but in contrast to that, reneging is triggered even if the arrival is waiting in a queue or is part of a non-permanent batch.
