CC to zookeeper-user
I've not keeped myself up to date on gearman development in the last weeks
(months) since I've been occupied with other duties, mostly the introduction
of hadoop in our company.
One subproject of hadoop is zookeeper, "a centralized service for
maintaining configuration information, naming, providing distributed
synchronization, and providing group services.".
One of the documented use cases of zookeeper is a distributed queue.
(However this document doesn't seem to be that well written.)
I woundered if anyone from the gearman project has already heard of zookeeper
and eventually considered a gearman implementation on top of it? It shouldn't
be that hard and it would get you replication for free.
Maybe I'll try ones my current project is done. :-)
