The code is straight-forward: it checks the health of a server using a tiny heart beat script.He provides both sides of the code - a simple "heartbeat" script that just responds with a JSON...

Artur Ejsmont's Blog: Publishing queue messages from PHP using different backends

Artur Ejsmont's Blog: Publishing queue messages from PHP using different backends
Artur Ejsmont has a new post sharing some benchmarks he put together about the "messages per second" and "time to execute" when using PHP to pull from various messaging backends.I have looked at the state of different messaging backends recently and i ran a little benchmark to see what is the rough comparison of message publishing throughput. Results that i got are quite surprising. What i wanted to achieve is some sort of reassurance before choosing a messaging bus for my PHP project.Running both the...

Alex Hudson's Blog: A (fond) farewell to Zend Framework
In this most recent post to his blog Alex Hudson says a "fond goodbye" to using the Zend Framework for his applications after trying out some of the functionality that's in Zend Framework version 2:I've been a Zend Framework user for a while.
