       gearmand - Gearman client/worker connector.


        gearmand --daemon


       This is the main executable for Gearman::Server.  It provides command-line configuration
       of port numbers, pidfiles, and daemonization.


       --daemonize / -d
           Make the daemon run in the background (good for init.d scripts, bad for running under

       --port=4730 / -p 4730
           Set the port number, defaults to 4730.

       --listen hostname / -L hostname
           Address the server should listen on.

           Default is

           Number of new connections to accept each time we see a listening socket ready. This

           to do it quickly.

           Number of workers to wake up per job inserted into the queue.

           Zero (0) is a perfectly acceptable answer, and can be used if you don't care much
           about job latency.  This would bank on the base idea of a worker checking in with the
           server every so often.

           Negative One (-1) indicates that all sleeping workers should be woken up.

           All other negative numbers will cause the server to throw exception and not start.

           Time interval before waking up more workers (the value specified by --wakeup) when
           jobs are still in the queue.

           Zero (0) means go as fast as possible, but not all at the same time. Similar to -1 on
           --wakeup, but is more cooperative in gearmand's multitasking model.

           Negative One (-1) means that this event won't happen, so only the initial workers will
           be woken up to handle jobs in the queue.
