No actual documentation on using Perl bindings?

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 bindings.


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).

	Listinfo: http://lists.rawmode.org/mailman/listinfo/catalyst
	Searchable archive:
	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

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

Also, you can look at Gearman.

Hope this helps,
