I have a server which I want to dedicate for converting
doc files to
I could start 6 headless office instances (on 6 different ports) and via some custom code make sure that each work request goes to a different instance. I'd have to check for when all 6 instances are busy working so I would hold the work in a pending queue buffer. I'd also have to manage timeouts/errors in order to restart the specific instance and attempt to redo the specific work that caused the problem, maybe for 1-2 more attempts until I give up.
The above scenario won't utilize 100% cpu for a single document, but it'll allow converting up to 6 documents at a time, instead of processing them one after the other at only 16.6% power.
My question is: does a product/tool exist to manage such scenario? Probably something generic that could orchestrate such tasks (not knowing any specifics about LibreOffice of course).
