An easy way to setup Gearman clients and workers in CakePHP. Gearman is a worker server that makes you able to perform lots of heavy logic in the background, in other programs.

Requirements

  • gearmand
  • pecl-gearman >= 0.5
  • PHP >= 5.3
  • CakePHP >= 2.2.0

Installation

  • composer install
  • git clone ...
  • HTTP download

Hint: app/Plugin/Gearman

Examples

Load the plugin:

CakePlugin::load('Gearman', array('bootstrap' => true));

Add the component to your controller:

class MyController {
    public $components = array('Gearman.Gearman');

    public function reverseName() {
        $this->autoRender = false;
        echo 'Norway = ', $this->Gearman->newTask('reverse', 'Norway');
    }

    public function backgroundJob() {
        $handle = $this->Gearman->newBackgroundTask('long_running');
        $this->redirect(array (
            'action' => 'jobStatus',
            $handle
        ));
    }

    public function jobStatus($handle) {
        $data = $this->Gearman->backgroundStatus ($handle);

        $this->autoRender = false;

        if (!$data[0]) {
            echo 'Gearman does not know about this job!';
            exit;
        }

        if ($data[1]) {
            echo 'The job is still running<br />', PHP_EOL;
        }

        echo 'Progress: ';
        if ($data[3] > 0) {
            printf ('%.2f %%', ($data[2] / $data[3]) * 100);
        } else {
            echo 'N/A';
        }

        echo '<br />', PHP_EOL;
        echo 'Refresh this page to see the progress increase';
    }
}

Your worker code (app/Console/Command/<nameOfShell>):

class NameOfShell extends AppShell {
    public $tasks = array('Gearman.GearmanShell');

    public function startup() {
        parent::startup();
        $this->GearmanShell->addMethod('reverse', $this);
        $this->GearmanShell->addMethod('long_running', array($this, 'longRunning'));
    }

    /**
     * To support running ./Console/cake ImageResize as an alternative
     * to ./Console/cake ImageResize GearmanShell
     */
    public function main() {
        $this->GearmanShell->execute();
    }

    /**
     * $workload will be a JSON decoded array, if your client
     * sends an array as workload. If not, it will be a string
     */
    public function execute(GearmanJob $job, $workload) {
        return strrev($workload);
    }

    public function longRunning(GearmanJob $job, $workload) {
        $m = 60;
        for ($i = 1; $i <= $m; $i++) {
            echo "Sleeping, ", ($m - $i), " seconds left\n";
            // update progress
            $job->sendStatus($i, $m);
            sleep(1);
        }
    }
}

Then start your worker:

./Console/Cake NameOfShell

If you want to start your worker process in the background, consider using nohup:

nohup ./Console/Cake NameOfShell 2>&1 > /dev/null &

You can also consider using the Daemon task in the cakephp-shells repo.

Other

The worker can be written in whatever language supports Gearman. This means that your worker registers at the Gearman server, and your client requests the specific method.
