NAME ^

Catalyst::Engine::JobQueue::POE - Cron-like job runner engine

VERSION ^

This document describes Catalyst::Engine::JobQueue::POE version 0.0.4

SYNOPSIS ^

A script using the Catalyst::Engine::JobQueue::POE module might look like:

  #!/usr/bin/perl
  
  use strict;
  use lib '/path/to/MyApp/lib';

  BEGIN {
    $ENV{CATALYST_ENGINE} = 'JobQueue::POE';
  }

  use MyApp;

  MyApp->run;

By specifying the appropiate environment variable, Catalyst will start the JobQueue runner with the POE engine.

DESCRIPTION ^

This is the Catalyst Engine specialized for running the JobQueue with POE.

INTERFACE ^

$self->get_job( $id )

Returns the job object with the given ID.

OVERLOADED METHODS ^

This class overloads some methods from Catalyst::Engine.

$self->prepare_headers

$self->write

DIAGNOSTICS ^

Fatal errors

These will cause the JobQueue runner to stop.

Cannot find schedule file "%s"

The configured schedule file doesn't exist. Check that you have supplied the correct filename, or that a file named crontab exists if no schedule_file option was set.

Cannot open crontab "%s" for reading, "%s"

The crontab file could not be read. The message at the end is the system error. Check permissions.

Warnings

These will warn you of some recoverable error.

Missing renderer %s [skipping]

A renderer configured to deliver the job response could not be found. Check the configuration and docs for supported renderers.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^

Catalyst::Engine::JobQueue::POE can be configured with the standard Catalyst configuration mechanism. It also uses environment variables for debugging and its own format for job configuration.

Catalyst configuration

These should appear under the Catalyst::Engine::JobQueue::POE key.

schedule_file

The path to the file which describes the jobs to be run. See "Job Configuration" for more details. Relative to the application root.

render

Describes how the JobQueue shoudl handle responses

to

A list of renderers to send the response to. Valid renderers are: log and email.

log

The log renderer sends the response body to the Catalyst logger.

level

The log level at which the response is logged. See Catalyst::Log for more details. The default value is info.

email

The email renderer sends the response via email to a given address. The content type, charset and encoding are taken from the appropiate response header (Content-Type and Content-Encoding). The subject is "Response for Job <ID>".

from

The address from which the email will be sent. The default value is <catalyst@localhost>.

to

The address to which the email will be sent. The default value is <root@localhost>.

smtp

The name of the SMTP server. The default value is localhost.

disposition

How the response body should be added to the email. Valid values are inline and attachment. The default value attachemnt.

Environment variables

If you set CATALYST_POE_DEBUG environment variable to a true value (like 1 or 'yes'), debug messages will be printed to STDOUT.

Job configuration

A job configuration file describes jobs and when to run them. It's syntax is modeled after the crontab file syntax.

Each line describes a job. Comments start with '#' and run to the end of the line.

Fields are separated by space. The first five fields describe how often the job will be run, identical to the crontab syntax (minute, hour, day of month, month, day of week). The 6th field specifies a user which the job will be run as (currently unused). The 7th field specifies the path used for the job request and the rest can be used to provide additional parameters to the request.
