A Ringbuffer is a data structure where the content is stored in a ring-like structure. A ringbuffer has a fixed capacity, so it won't grow beyond that capacity and endanger the stability of the system. If that capacity is exceeded, the oldest item in the ringbuffer is overwritten.
Methods that require serialization/deserialization may throw RangeError, e.g when there is no suitable serializer for a certain type.
Adds an item to the tail of this Ringbuffer. Overflow policy determines
what will happen if there is no space left in this ringbuffer.
OVERWRITE was passed, the new item will overwrite the oldest one
regardless of the configured time-to-live.
In the case when
FAIL was specified the add operation will keep failing
until the oldest item in this Ringbuffer will reach its time-to-live.
The returned value is the sequence number of the added item. You can read the added item using this number.

Adds all items in the specified array to the tail of this Ringbuffer.
The behavior of this method is essentially the same as the one of
The method does not guarantee that the inserted items will have contiguous sequence numbers.

Destroys this object cluster-wide. Clears all resources taken for this object.
Returns the unique name of this object.
Returns the key of the partition that this DistributedObject is assigned to.
For a partitioned data structure, the returned value will not be
Returns the service name for this object.
Returns the head sequence. The head is the side of the ringbuffer where the oldest items are found.
If the ringbuffer is empty, the head will be one more than the tail.
The initial value of the head is
head sequence of this Ringbuffer
Reads a batch of items from the Ringbuffer. If the number of available
items starting at
sequence is smaller than
maxCount, then this
method will not wait for more items to arrive. Instead, available
items will be returned.
If there are fewer items available than
minCount, then this call will
not return a response until a necessary number of items becomes available.
startSequence is smaller than the smallest sequence still available
in the Ringbuffer
headSequence, then the smallest available
sequence will be used as the start sequence, and the minimum/maximum
number of items will be attempted to be read from there on.
startSequence is bigger than the last available sequence in the
tailSequence, then the last available sequence
plus one will be used as the start sequence, and the call will block
until further items become available, and it can read at least the
minimum number of items.
sequence number of the first item to be read.

maximum number of items to be read.
Reads a single item from this Ringbuffer.
If the sequence is equal to the current tail sequence plus one, this call will not return a response until an item is added. If it is more than that, an error will be thrown.
take, this method does not remove an item from the
Ringbuffer. This means that the same item can be read by multiple

Returns the remaining capacity of this ringbuffer.
The returned value could be stale as soon as it is returned.
If the time-to-live was NOT set in the configuration, the remaining capacity will always be equal to the capacity.
remaining capacity of this Ringbuffer
Returns the number of the items in this Ringbuffer.
If time-to-live was not configured for this ringbuffer, the size will always be equal to the capacity after the first loop is completed around the ring. This is because no items are getting removed and are overwritten instead.
size of this Ringbuffer
Returns the tail sequence. The tail is the side of the Ringbuffer at which the items are added.
The initial value of the tail sequence is
