Build Status

Distributed multi-reader lock using MongoDB

Requirements

Requires PHP 5.4.0 (or later).

Installation

To add the library as a local, per-project dependency use Composer!

{
    "require": {
        "gaillard/mongo-lock": "~1.0"
    }
}

Example

$writer = function($value) {
    $db = (new \MongoClient())->selectDB('locksExample');
    $data = $db->selectCollection('data');
    $locker = new Locker($db->selectCollection('locks'), 0);

    while (true) {
        $locker->writeLock('theId', 1000);

        $data->update(['_id' => 1], ['_id' => 1, 'key' => $value], ['upsert' => true]);
        $data->update(['_id' => 2], ['_id' => 2, 'key' => $value], ['upsert' => true]);
        $data->update(['_id' => 3], ['_id' => 3, 'key' => $value], ['upsert' => true]);
        $data->update(['_id' => 4], ['_id' => 4, 'key' => $value], ['upsert' => true]);

        $locker->writeUnlock('theId');
    }
};

$reader = function() {
    $db = (new \MongoClient())->selectDB('locksExample');
    $data = $db->selectCollection('data');
    $locker = new Locker($db->selectCollection('locks'), 100000);

    while (true) {
        $readerId = $locker->readLock('theId', 1000);

        foreach ($data->find()->sort(['_id' => 1]) as $doc) {
            echo "{$doc['key']} ";
        }

        echo "\n";

        $locker->readUnlock('theId', $readerId);

        usleep(100000);
    }
};

$writerOnePid = pcntl_fork();
if ($writerOnePid === 0) {
    $writer('pie');
    exit;
}

$writerTwoPid = pcntl_fork();
if ($writerTwoPid === 0) {
    $writer('cake');
    exit;
}

$readerOnePid = pcntl_fork();
if ($readerOnePid === 0) {
    $reader();
    exit;
}

$readerTwoPid = pcntl_fork();
if ($readerTwoPid === 0) {
    $reader();
    exit;
}

sleep(4);

posix_kill($writerOnePid, SIGTERM);
posix_kill($writerTwoPid, SIGTERM);
posix_kill($readerOnePid, SIGTERM);
posix_kill($readerTwoPid, SIGTERM);

prints something similiar too

pie pie pie pie
pie pie pie pie pie
pie pie pie
pie pie pie pie pie pie pie pie

cake cake cake cake cake cake cake
cake
pie pie pie pie
cake cake cake cake
pie pie pie pie
cake cake cake cake

You'll notice that all the pies and cakes are always seperated by a newline. That is because there are no readers with a lock during writing. That also indicates both writers not writing at the same time. Sometimes when running the example there are more or less than four printed before a newline. That is the case when the two readers have a lock at the same time.
