PHP Fork Daemon

A library to make setup and management of forking daemons in PHP easy.

Features

  • Easy management of PHP forks
  • Return result of children by callback or polling parent for results
  • Splitting work units into buckets
  • Preforking callbacks to manage resources before forking
  • Dynamic setting of number of children / work per child

Usage

Check out the examples in the examples directory php example/blocking.php

Caveats

  • You need to specify declare(ticks=1); before inclusion of the fork-daemon library, otherwise signals wont be handled. This must be done in the main PHP file, as declare(ticks=N); only works for the file in which it is declared and the files which that file includes. Reference: PHP Documentation
