DESCRIPTION ^

MooseX::Workers is a Role that provides easy delegation of long-running tasks into a managed child process. Process managment is taken care of via POE and it's POE::Wheel::Run module.

METHODS ^

spawn ($command) =item fork ($command) =item run_command ($command)

This is the whole point of this module. This will pass $command through to the MooseX::Worker::Engine which will take care of running this asynchronously.

check_worker_threshold

This will check to see how many workers you have compared to the max_workers limit. It returns true if the $num_workers is >= $max_workers;

max_workers($count)

An accessor for the maxium number of workers. This is delegated to the MooseX::Workers::Engine object.

has_workers

Check to see if we have *any* workers currently. This is delegated to the MooseX::Workers::Engine object.

num_workers

Return the current number of workers. This is delegated to the MooseX::Workers::Engine object.

meta

The Metaclass for MooseX::Workers::Engine see Moose's documentation.

INTERFACE ^

worker_manager_start

Called when the managing session is started

worker_manager_stop

Called when the managing session stops

max_workers_reached

Called when we reach the maximum number of workers

worker_stdout

worker_stderr
