» Description
Gearman ( is a system to farm out work to other machines, dispatching function calls to machines that are better suited to do work, to do work in parallel, to load balance lots of function calls, or to call functions between languages.

Net_Gearman is a PHP package that interfaces with Gearman. Net_Gearman is already in production at Yahoo! and Digg doing all sorts of offloaded "near time" processing. The package includes a client class for interfacing with Gearman to submit jobs and a worker class for connecting to Gearman servers to participate in working.
