[Catalyst] A Perl Message Queue?

Good message queue systems can exceed 100,000 messages per second in
throughput.  They say OpenAMQ does, for example.


I suggest looking at OpenAMQ (openamq.org).  It is free (GNU license),
supported and used by major companies for $$$ work, looks well designed,
seems very flexible, has great performance, and, most importantly, has perl


Another popular free message queue is ActiveMQ.  Only downside to it is that
it seems rather geared towards java and it's JMS philosophy (though perl
bindings are available).

Maybe TheSchwartz does what you want:



List: Catalyst at lists.rawmode.org
Listinfo: http://lists.rawmode.org/mailman/listinfo/catalyst
Searchable archive: http://www.mail-archive.com/catalyst@lists.rawmode.org/
Dev site: http://dev.catalyst.perl.org/

I second using TheSchwartz -- 6a/TypePad had a presentation at OSCON on it,
reporting that they were having throughput of 800 messages per second. 

We're using it at my job, and loving it.  I wrote out the very high level
"experience" at

Also, you can look at Gearman.

Hope this helps,
