README

Parallel batch distributes your batches across servers.

It is based on ActiveRecord and relies on the database to ensure records are processed only once.

To get started include Parallel batch into your Gemfile and run bundle install.

  gem 'parallel_batch'

Then run the following migration to create the parallel_batches table.

  class CreateParallelBatches < ActiveRecord::Migration
    def self.up
      create_table :parallel_batches do |t|
        t.string :type
        t.string :offset # It works either with integer or string IDs.
        t.timestamps
      end

      add_index :parallel_batches, :type, :unique: true
    end

    def self.down
      drop_table :parallel_batches
    end
  end

Your parallel batch must be a sub class of ParallelBatch. It must implement scope and perform methods. Perform is called for each record selected by your defined scope.

    # File: app/models/track_batch.rb
    class TrackBatch < ParallelBatch
      def scope
        Track.not_encoded
      end

      def perform(track)
        track.encode_mp3
      end
    end

For starting your batches SSH into your servers and run the following command.

    TrackBatch.start(5) # Create 5 workers in their own process.
