    Functional Interface:
    This is a functional interface and can therefore be used as the assignment target for a lambda expression or method reference.

    public interface ExecInterceptor
    Intercepts execution segments of an execution, primarily for traceability and recording metrics.

    Interceptors present in the base registry will be implicitly applied to all executions. Execution specific interceptors can be registered via the ExecStarter.register(Action) method when starting the execution. The Execution.addInterceptor(ExecInterceptor, Block) method allows interceptors to be registered during an execution, for the rest of the execution.

        void intercept​(Execution execution,
                       ExecInterceptor.ExecType execType,
                       Block executionSegment)
                throws java.lang.Exception
        Intercepts the execution of an execution segment.

        The execution segment argument represents a unit of work of the execution.

        Implementations MUST invoke execute() on the given execution segment block.

        execution - the execution that this segment belongs to
        execType - indicates whether this segment is execution on a compute or blocking thread
        executionSegment - the execution segment that is to be executed
        java.lang.Exception - any
