    In the Django world, you'd probably rely on Celery to do this for you. You're probably looking for something similar that works with Go.

  • Use Celery with any Django Storage as a Result Backend
    5 projects | /r/django | 7 Feb 2023
    The Celery package provides some number of (undocumented!) result backends to store task results in different local, network, and cloud storages. The django-celery-result package adds options to use Django-specific ORM-based result storage, as well as Django-specific cache subsystem.

    I spent 3 years building a high scale crawler on top of Celery.

    I can't recommend it. We found many bugs in the more advanced features of Celery (like Canvas) we also ran into some really weird issues like tasks getting duplicated for no reason [1].

    The most concerning problem is that the project was abandoned. The original creator is not working on it anymore and all issues that we raised were ignored. We had to fork the project and apply our own fixes to it. This was 4 years ago so maybe things improved since them.

    Celery is also extremely complex.

    I would recommend instead.

    A different approach would be to have a main web application which would communicate with worker processes for time intensive operations as you describe. The web app would communicate with workers via some form of MQ or even database. Many solutions exists for that in different languages, one such solution is [Celery]( primarily developed for Python but these days it also supports Node, Go, PHP and Rust.
