AsyncMySQL - Asynchronous MySQL Query Manager

0.1.3 2018-03-11 23:28 UTC


AsyncMySQL helps manage several asynchronous queries with callbacks on success or failure. It can be used by itself to speed up concurrent queries in a single model, or in conjunction with an asynchronous library such as Amp or Ratchet.


This library uses mysqli::poll to check for completed queries in its query pool. Once a query is completed it calls the appropriate callback. This library requires you have mysqli and mysqlnd installed. Only mysqlnd supports the mysqli_poll function.


composer require johncurt/async-mysql


First instantiate a ConnectionManager. This is the class that connects the queries to a database (one connection per query) and polls the connections to see if they are ready to be reaped. Pass all of your connection data into it.

$conn = new \JohnCurt\AsyncMySQL\ConnectionManager('', 'user', 'pass', 'schema', 3306);

Then you instantiate a Query for each query that you will be attaching. Be sure to pass in callbacks (or null if no callback is needed), making use of the use construct to gain access to variables outside the scope of the callback.

$success1 = function(\mysqli_request $request) use (&$request1) { $request1 = $request;};

$failure1 = function(string $error) use (&$error1) { $error1 = $error;};

$query = new \JohnCurt\AsyncMySQL\Query('SELECT * FROM table WHERE 1', $success1, $failure1);

Once the query is instantiated, you can send it off for processing:


You can add as many as you want. When you are ready to get some results, You can either have the ConnectionManager just reap the ones that are ready or you can make a blocking call to wait for everything to come back. Regardless, all of the queries are (have been) run in separate connections, asynchronously.



$conn->reapAll(); (blocking)

You can also pass in a timeout to the reapAll method that will cause it to stop waiting for queries to finish after the prescribed seconds.
