NAME ^

gearmand - Gearman client/worker connector.

SYNOPSIS ^

 gearmand --daemon

DESCRIPTION ^

This is the main executable for Gearman::Server. It provides command-line configuration of port numbers, pidfiles, and daemonization.

OPTIONS ^

--daemonize / -d

Make the daemon run in the background (good for init.d scripts, bad for running under daemontools/supervise).

--port=7003 / -p 7003

Set the port number, defaults to 7003.

--pidfile=/some/dir/gearmand.pid

Write a pidfile when starting up

--debug=1

Enable debugging (currently the only debug output is when a client or worker connects).

--accept=10

Number of new connections to accept each time we see a listening socket ready. This doesn't usually need to be tuned by anyone, however in dire circumstances you may need to do it quickly.

--wakeup=3

Number of workers to wake up per job inserted into the queue.

Zero (0) is a perfectly acceptable answer, and can be used if you don't care much about job latency. This would bank on the base idea of a worker checking in with the server every so often.

Negative One (-1) indicates that all sleeping workers should be woken up.

All other negative numbers will cause the server to throw exception and not start.

--wakeup-delay=

Time interval before waking up more workers (the value specified by --wakeup) when jobs are still in the queue.

Zero (0) means go as fast as possible, but not all at the same time. Similar to -1 on --wakeup, but is more cooperative in gearmand's multitasking model.

Negative One (-1) means that this event won't happe, so only the initial workers will be woken up to handle jobs in the queue.
