DaemonBundle Build Status

Allows you to create daemonized commands with the React event-loop component.


Via composer :

"require": {

then enable the bundle in your kernel:


$bundles = [
    new M6Web\Bundle\DaemonBundle\M6WebDaemonBundle()


  • For Symfony versions ">=2.3 && <3.0" support, you can use "m6web/daemon-bundle":"^1.4".
  • For PHP versions ">=5.5.9 && <7.0" support, you can use "m6web/daemon-bundle":"^3.0".


You can optionally define events which are triggered each X iterations :

            count: 10
            name: "daemon.iteration.each.10"
            count: 5
            name: "daemon.iteration.each.5"

Write command

This command use the event-loop component which ReactPHP uses to run loops and other asynchronous tasks.


use M6Web\Bundle\DaemonBundle\Command\DaemonCommand;

use Symfony\Component\Console\Input\InputInterface;
use Symfony\Component\Console\Output\OutputInterface;

class MyDaemonizedCommand extends DaemonCommand
    protected function configure()
            ->setDescription('My daemonized command');

    protected function setup(InputInterface $input, OutputInterface $output)
        // Set up your daemon here

        // Add your own optional callback : called every 10 iterations
        $this->addIterationsIntervalCallback(10, [$this, 'executeEveryTenLoops']);
        // You can add your own Periodic Timer,
        // Here this timer will be called every 0.5s
        $daemon = $this;
        $this->loop->addPeriodicTimer(0.5, function ($timer) use ($daemon) {
            // It's the last loop, cancel the timer.
            if ($daemon->isLastLoop()) {

     * Execute is called at every loop
    protected function execute(InputInterface $input, OutputInterface $output)
        // This method helps to give back the CPU to the react-loop.
        // So you can wait between two iterations if your workers has nothing to do.
        $this->setNextIterationSleepingTime(1000000); // Every second

     * executeEveryTenLoops is called every 10 loops
    protected function executeEveryTenLoops(InputInterface $input, OutputInterface $output)
        $output->writeln("Iteration " . $this->getLoopCount());

Run command

You can run a daemonized command as any other Symfony command. DaemonCommand parent class provide additional options :

  • --run-once - Run the command just once
  • --run-max - Run the command x time
  • --memory-max - Gracefully stop running command when given memory volume, in bytes, is reached
  • --shutdown-on-exception - Ask for shutdown if an exception is thrown
  • --show-exceptions - Display exceptions on command output stream

Command events

Daemonized command trigger the following events :

  • DaemonEvents::DAEMON_START
  • DaemonEvents::DAEMON_LOOP_BEGIN
  • DaemonEvents::DAEMON_LOOP_END
  • DaemonEvents::DAEMON_STOP
