Subject zookeeper for gearman?
Date Fri, 19 Feb 2010 09:01:02 GMT
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[1] in our company.
One subproject of hadoop is zookeeper[2], "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[3]. 
(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. :-)
