Python multiprocessing server client inter-process communication (IPC) over Queue. https://stackoverflow.com/a/62608473/1592410

Usage:

$ python3 multiprocessing-queue-manager-server.py N
Server address 1: <server-address-1>
Server address 2: <server-address-2>
...

N is a integer indicating how many servers should be created. Copy one of the <server-address-N> output by the server and make it the first argument of each multiprocessing-queue-manager-client.py.

E.g.

$ python3 multiprocessing-queue-manager-client.py <server-address-1>
$ python3 multiprocessing-queue-manager-client.py <server-address-2>

Result on the server side:

Client 1: <item> from <server-address-1>
Client 2: <item> from <server-address-2>
...
