Normally resque processes queues in a fixed order. This can lead to jobs in queues at the end of the list not getting handled for very long periods. resque-fairly provides a mechanism where by workers are distributed across the set of queues with pending jobs fairly. This results in a much more predictable mean time to handling for jobs in queues that are not the first in the list.
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
- Fork the project.
- Make your feature addition or bug fix.
- Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
- Commit, do not mess with the version. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
- Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
