Requires Go. Tested with Go 1.8+.

Clone this repo into your GOPATH ($HOME/go by default) and run build:

mkdir -p $HOME/go/src/
cd $HOME/go/src/
git clone
cd gearman-exporter
make build

You should then have two executables: gearman-exporter.linux.amd64 and gearman-exporter.darwin.amd64

You may want to rename for your local OS, ie mv gearman-exporter.darwin.amd64 gearman-exporter

Run Gearman server for testing

For testing you might want to run a gearman server with Docker:

docker run -p 4730:4730 cargomedia/gearman

While the server is running you could attach a worker function "foo" like this:

docker exec $(docker ps -qf ancestor=cargomedia/gearman) gearman -t9999 -wnf foo

Release new version

  1. Push a tag vX.Y.Z to Github
  2. Travis will build the program and create a Github release
