Examples

Example #1 A low priority task along with two normal tasks

A low priority task is included among two other tasks. A single worker is available, so that tasks are run one at a time, with the low priority task run last.

<?php

# create the gearman client
$gmc= new GearmanClient();

# add the default job server
$gmc->addServer();

# set the callback for when the job is complete
$gmc->setCompleteCallback("reverse_complete");

# add tasks, one of which is low priority
$task$gmc->addTask("reverse""Hello World!"null"1");
$task$gmc->addTaskLow("reverse""!dlroW olleH"null"2");
$task$gmc->addTask("reverse""Hello World!"null"3");

if (! 
$gmc->runTasks())
{
    echo 
"ERROR " $gmc->error() . "\n";
    exit;
}
echo 
"DONE\n";

function 
reverse_complete($task)
{
    echo 
"COMPLETE: " $task->unique() . ", " $task->data() . "\n";
}

?>

The above example will output something similar to:

COMPLETE: 3, !dlroW olleH
COMPLETE: 1, !dlroW olleH
COMPLETE: 2, Hello World!
DONE
