( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The only siginficant difference was that once the client was assigned to a worker, the "server" got out of the way and let the two communicate directly.
I never considered doing that for my project, mainly because the jobs were usually (but definitely not always) finished within a fraction of a second - somewhere between 1 and 0.05 seconds is typical - and multiple clients can - and will, if the job queue is long enough - request the same job (which might be running or queued already).

Putting all the coordination in the server made the clients and the workers very simple. Having all the synchronization in a single-threaded single process made the server relatively simple too.

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
