Gearman::Server(3)    User Contributed Perl Documentation   Gearman::Server(3)

NAME
       Gearman::Server - function call "router"	and load balancer

DESCRIPTION
       You run a Gearman server	(or more likely, many of them for both high-
       availability and	load balancing), then have workers (using
       Gearman::Worker from the	Gearman	module,	or libraries for other
       languages) register their ability to do certain functions to all	of
       them, and then clients (using Gearman::Client, Gearman::Client::Async,
       etc) request work to be done from one of	the Gearman servers.

       The servers connect them, routing function call requests	to the
       appropriate workers, multiplexing responses to duplicate	requests as
       requested, etc.

       More than likely, you want to use the provided gearmand wrapper script,
       and not use Gearman::Server directly.

METHODS
   new
	 $server_object	= Gearman::Server->new(	%options )

       Creates and returns a new Gearman::Server object, which attaches	itself
       to the Danga::Socket event loop.	The server will	begin operating	when
       the Danga::Socket runloop is started. This means	you need to start up
       the runloop before anything will	happen.

       Options:

       port
	   Specify a port which	you would like the Gearman::Server to listen
	   on for TCP connections (not necessary, but useful)

   create_listening_sock
	 $server_object->create_listening_sock(	$portnum )

       Add a TCP port listener for incoming Gearman worker and client
       connections.

   start_worker
	 $pid =	$server_object->start_worker( $prog )

	 ($pid,	$client) = $server_object->start_worker( $prog )

       Fork and	start a	worker process named by	$prog and returns the pid (or
       pid and client object).
