This is achieved by encoding protocol, host and port in the address part of the path string. When an actor system receives an actor path from a remote node, it checks whether that path's address matches the address of this actor system, in which case it will be resolved to the actor's local reference.How do I access the parent actor from another actor?
Path elements consisting of two dots ("..") may be used to access the parent actor. You can for example send a message to a specific sibling: Absolute paths may of course also be looked up on context in the usual way, i.e. will work as expected.How do I send an actor reference across the network?
When sending an actor reference across the network, it is represented by its path. Hence, the path must fully encode all information necessary to send messages to the underlying actor. This is achieved by encoding protocol, host and port in the address part of the path string.How are actors identified and located within a distributed actor system?
This chapter describes how actors are identified and located within a possibly distributed actor system. It ties into the central idea that Actor Systems form intrinsic supervision hierarchies as well as that communication between actors is transparent with respect to their placement across multiple network nodes.
