Various tools for watching beanstalkd.

Beanstalk Utilities

Here is a small collection of tools for watching, monitoring, and manipulating beanstalkd.

Interactive Commands

Interactive commands are in the bin directory.

beanstalk-stats.rb

beanstalk-stats.rb gives you a feel for how fast things are going in and out of your queue.

usage: beanstalk-stats.rb host:11300 host2:11300 [...]

beanstalk-queue-stats.rb

beanstalk-queue-stats.rb watches a single beanstalk instance and shows you which tubes contain elements, and how fast they're changing.

usage: beanstalk-queue-stats.rb host:11300

beanstalk-cleanup.rb

beanstalk-cleanup.rb is a continuously edited one-off script to help clean stuff out of queues. It pulls stuff out of the queue and defers, buries, or deletes items based on regexes over the content.

usage: vi beanstalk-cleanup.rb
       # edit the awesome hard-coded bury and delete rules
       beanstalk-cleanup.rb host:11300

beanstalk-export.rb

beanstalk-export.rb will export all of the jobs from a server. You can use it to perform a server upgrade, or migrate all of the jobs from one server another.

You should put the server in draining mode (send signal USR1) before starting this to ensure new jobs aren't getting queued. You may also consider shutting down your workers since it may otherwise cause jobs to be executed prematurely.

Note that the following job attributes are preserved:

  • tube
  • delay
  • priority
  • ttr
  • body

Anything else (e.g. buried status or number of failures) is lost in translation.

usage: beanstalk-export.rb host:11300 > export.yml

beanstalk-import.rb

beanstalk-import.rb is a tool to complement to beanstalk-export.rb by allowing the export to be loaded into another server.

usage: beanstalk-import.rb export.yml host:11300

Nagios Monitoring Scripts

beanstalk-jobs.rb

Ensures the number of jobs in the default tube fall within a reasonable range.

usage: beanstalk-jobs.rb --host localhost --port 11300 --warn 10 --error 20

warn and error respectively set the maximum number of jobs found before a warning or error is issued. Optionally the --tube argument can be used to restrict statistics to a particular tube.

beanstalk-workers.rb

Ensures that the number of workers within the queue is within range.

usage: beanstalk-workers.rb  --host localhost --port 11300 --warn 10 --error 5

warn and error respectively specify the minimum workers that should be in place before a warning or error is issued. Optionally the --tube argument can be used to restrict statistics to a particular tube.

beanstalk-rate.rb

Ensures the growth rate of a particular stat is within range.

usage: beanstalk-rate.rb host:11300 --host localhost --port 11300 --warnlow 0.05 --errorlow 0.01   --warnhigh 0.75 --errorhigh 0.99 --stat stat_name

All min and max values are required and are interpreted as floats. The rates are expressed as units per second. Optionally the --tube argument can be used to restrict statistics to a particular tube.
