I am starting to build an application using Queue fifo object in python's "multiprocessing" module to distribute task units to worker processes.
Since I would like to eventually bring in some other components written in .net, I am thinking of trying to use RabbitMQ instead.
I have two questions:
1) Is it hard to set up RabbitMQ for single machine use?
2) I see there are a few AMQP projects for python. What should I use?
Notes on my app:
Each task unit is less than 1kb and I don't intend for the queue to be allowed to grow than ~200 task units long. At that point, I have the task producer set to pause and wait until the queue goes down.
I do want to be able to flag certain tasks as "dependant", so that a certain task must be marked "done" before it's dependent can can run.
