Who here has used BackgroundDrb and how well has it performed for you? I
have an application that creates more then 20 HTTP request to certain
webpages and checks for text on those pages. However I would like to
these operations for speed. I am interested in using BackgroundDrb, but
not certain that I should invest my time on it or if there are others
more viable in existence.
BackgrounDRb is the right thing for your app. its just great. if you

I use it on one of my apps to do an long set of record copying
operations (taking several minutes). I hadn’t used Drb before, so I was
coming at it cold, but nevertheless I found it very easy to set up. And
so far I’ve found it reliable in terms of staying alive and overall
My main concern is availability. I don’t want to invest time(money) into
implementing this solution only to find myself having to deal with
issues. Thanks for the replies.

I might be a tad biased as I wrote the plugin ;) But it is working
great for me in a number of apps that have to maintain high
availability. There are also many other folks using it as integral
parts of their business. I have not experienced and issues that are
insurmountable. I also am actively working on and improving the
plugin all the time so It will remain supported. Others can chime in
as to how they are using it but I created it because there was a real
need for something like it and nothing else existed. Its pretty easy
to setup and try for yourself. I imagine you can have a simple test
working in half an hour or so. So evaluate it for yourself and see
what you think. And then if you like it join us on the mailing list.

I can second all of the above, it is used in Heartbeat (
http://heartbeat.highgroove.com/) and has been reliable since it was put
into production doing something very similar to what you describe.
Cheers, and good luck.
