I've implemented a queuing infrastructure using IPC::DirQueue

Some of the other persistent queue implementations on CPAN don't allow multiple processes accessing queues. IPC::DirQueue can work with multiple processes and even multiple hosts via NFS.

Also the CPAN queue implementations I've looked at don't have the idea of a job on the queue being active, they only do push and shift. An active job stays on the queue until you say "I've finished with that job". Other processes don't pick up the job while active.

Great module. It may fit your needs if you don't want to dive into oracle queues.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
