Description: Beanstalk is a job queue for distributed applications. This technology provides the ability to perform work, such as sending emails, processing statistics, or creating files either in the background or real-time. Client or browser processes (producers) create descriptions of work to be performed (jobs), and web request handlers place the jobs into the Beanstalk job queue. Worker processes (consumers) remove jobs from the beanstalk job queue, perform the requested actions and then return the results back to the Beanstalk job queue for delivery to the requesting client. Clients may schedule the worker to execute jobs at a certain time of day, after a response has been sent to a client, or at some time in the future after other events have occurred.
