Basic Gearman client and worker, submitting tasks

Example #1 Basic Gearman client and worker, submitting tasks

In this example, the basic reverse client extended to run two tasks in parallel. The reverse worker is unchanged except to add sending of data back during processing.

<?php

# create the gearman client
$gmc= new GearmanClient();

# add the default server (localhost)
$gmc->addServer();

# register some callbacks
$gmc->setCreatedCallback("reverse_created");
$gmc->setDataCallback("reverse_data");
$gmc->setStatusCallback("reverse_status");
$gmc->setCompleteCallback("reverse_complete");
$gmc->setFailCallback("reverse_fail");

# set some arbitrary application data
$data['foo'] = 'bar';

# add two tasks
$task$gmc->addTask("reverse""foo"$data);
$task2$gmc->addTaskLow("reverse""bar"NULL);

# run the tasks in parallel (assuming multiple workers)
if (! $gmc->runTasks())
{
    echo 
"ERROR " $gmc->error() . "\n";
    exit;
}

echo 
"DONE\n";

function 
reverse_created($task)
{
    echo 
"CREATED: " $task->jobHandle() . "\n";
}

function 
reverse_status($task)
{
    echo 
"STATUS: " $task->jobHandle() . " - " $task->taskNumerator() . 
         
"/" $task->taskDenominator() . "\n";
}

function 
reverse_complete($task)
{
    echo 
"COMPLETE: " $task->jobHandle() . ", " $task->data() . "\n";
}

function 
reverse_fail($task)
{
    echo 
"FAILED: " $task->jobHandle() . "\n";
}

function 
reverse_data($task)
{
    echo 
"DATA: " $task->data() . "\n";
}

?>
<?php

echo "Starting\n";

# Create our worker object.
$gmworker= new GearmanWorker();

# Add default server (localhost).
$gmworker->addServer();

# Register function "reverse" with the server. Change the worker function to
# "reverse_fn_fast" for a faster worker with no output.
$gmworker->addFunction("reverse""reverse_fn");

print 
"Waiting for job...\n";
while(
$gmworker->work())
{
  if (
$gmworker->returnCode() != GEARMAN_SUCCESS)
  {
    echo 
"return_code: " $gmworker->returnCode() . "\n";
    break;
  }
}

function 
reverse_fn($job)
{
  echo 
"Received job: " $job->handle() . "\n";

  
$workload $job->workload();
  
$workload_size $job->workloadSize();

  echo 
"Workload: $workload ($workload_size)\n";

  
# This status loop is not needed, just showing how it works
  
for ($x0$x $workload_size$x++)
  {
    echo 
"Sending status: " . ($x 1) . "/$workload_size complete\n";
    
$job->sendStatus($x+1$workload_size);
    
$job->sendData(substr($workload$x1));
    
sleep(1);
  }

  
$resultstrrev($workload);
  echo 
"Result: $result\n";

  
# Return what we want to send back to the client.
  
return $result;
}

# A much simpler and less verbose version of the above function would be:
function reverse_fn_fast($job)
{
  return 
strrev($job->workload());
}

?>

The above example will output something similar to:

% php reverse_worker.php

Workload: foo (3)
