A Gearman worker to do distributed job persistence for reliable delivery

Project description

A Gearman worker to do distributed job persistence for reliable delivery


This project is inspired by dormando’s Garivini. Since that one is in Perl, and we don’t like supporting perl, we are reimplementing the same interface in python with the gear library.

See for more.


  • Distributed message persistence for Gearman jobs makes persistence scale out.
  • No centralized store makes system more fault tolerant.

Quick Start

Gearstore is pip installable. Once it has been installed, you will need to initialize the database schema:

gearstore-init-schema mysql://user:pass@host/dbname

You will also need a gearman server available. The library used by gearstore, gear, includes one and it will be availalbe in the same place as gearstore as geard:


Once the database is initialized, run as many gearstores as is needed to keep traffic flowing:

gearstore --sqlalchemy-dsn=mysql://user:pass@host/dbname
