SharQ

SharQ is a flexible rate limited queueing system built using Redis. SharQ is the core library that powers the SharQ Server.

Installation

pip install sharq

Configuration

Sample SharQ Config file.

[sharq]
job_expire_interval       : 1000 ; in milliseconds
job_requeue_interval      : 1000 ; in milliseconds
default_job_requeue_limit : -1 ; retries infinitely

[redis]
db                        : 0
key_prefix                : sharq_server
conn_type                 : tcp_sock ; or unix_sock
;; unix connection settings
unix_socket_path          : /tmp/redis.sock
;; tcp connection settings
port                      : 6379
host                      : 127.0.0.1

Note: Uncomment the following lines in your redis.conf if you are using unix socket to connect to Redis.

unixsocket /var/run/redis/redis.sock
unixsocketperm 755

Usage

Initialization

>>> from sharq import SharQ

>>> sq = SharQ('/path/to/config/sharq.conf')

Enqueue

Enqueues a job into the queue. Every enqueue request is accompanied with an interval. The interval specifies the rate limiting capability of SharQ. An interval of 1000ms implies that SharQ will ensure two successful dequeue requests will be separated by 1000ms (interval is the inverse of rate. 1000ms interval means 1 job per second)

>>> response = sq.enqueue(
	    job_id='cea84623-be35-4368-90fa-7736570dabc4',
		payload={'message': 'hello, world'},
		interval=1000,  # in milliseconds.
		queue_id='user001',
		queue_type='sms'  # optional. defaults to 'default' queue type.
	)
>>> print response
{'status': 'queued'}

Dequeue

Dequeues a job (non-blocking). It returns a job only if available or if it is ready for dequeue (based on the interval set while enqueueing).

>>> response = sq.dequeue(
	    queue_type='sms'  # optional.
	)
>>> print response  # when the queue is empty or no job is ready.
{'status': 'failure'}
>>> print response  # when the job is ready.
{'job_id': 'cea84623-be35-4368-90fa-7736570dabc4',
 'payload': {'message': 'hello, world'},
 'queue_id': 'johndoe',
 'status': 'success'}

Finish

Marks any dequeued job as succesfully completed. Any job which does get marked as finished upon dequeue will be re-enqueued into its respective queue after an expiry time (the job_requeue_interval in the config).

>>> response = sq.finish(
	    queue_type='sms',
		job_id='bb59a2be-3b48-4645-8134-d9181742e3cf',
		queue_id='user001'
	)
>>> print response
{'status': 'success'}

Requeue

Ee-queues all the jobs which do not get the finish (ACK) within the expiry time (the job_requeue_interval in the config file).

>>> response = sq.requeue()  # re-queues all expired jobs.
>>> print response
None

Interval

Updates the interval for a specified queue on the fly. The interval specifies the rate limiting capability of SharQ. An interval of 1000ms implies that SharQ will ensure two successful dequeue requests will be separated by 1000ms (interval is the inverse of rate. 1000ms interval means 1 job per second).

>>> response = sq.interval(
	    queue_type='sms',
		interval=5000,  # interval between two successful dequeues is set to 5s
		queue_id='user001'
	)
>>> print response
{'status': 'success'}

Merics

Gets the SharQ metrics like,

  • Overall enqueue / dequeue rate.
  • Queue specific enqueue / dequeue rate.
  • Queue types and queue ids in SharQ.
  • Queue length of a particual queue.
>>> response = sq.metrics()  # gets the overall statistics.
>>> print response
{'dequeue_counts': {
   '1406280420000': 10, # epoch timestamp of the minute & the dequeue count.
   '1406280480000': 0,
