Client for Disque, an in-memory, distributed job queue.
Create a new Disque client by passing a list of nodes:
client = Disque.new(["127.0.0.1:7711", "127.0.0.1:7712", "127.0.0.1:7713"])
Alternatively, you can pass a single string with comma-separated nodes:
client = Disque.new("127.0.0.1:7711,127.0.0.1:7712,127.0.0.1:7713")
Using a single string is useful if you are receiving the list of nodes from an environment variable.
If the nodes are password protected, you can pass the
client = Disque.new("127.0.0.1:7711", auth: "e727d1464a...")
The client keeps track of which nodes are providing more jobs, and after a given number operations it tries to connect to the preferred node. The number of operations for each cycle defaults to 1000, but it can be configured:
client = Disque.new("127.0.0.1:7711", cycle: 20000)
Now you can add jobs:
client.push("foo", "bar", 100)
It will push the job
"bar" to the queue
"foo" with a timeout
of 100 ms, and return the id of the job if it was received and
replicated in time.
ADDJOB signature is as follows:
ADDJOB queue_name job <ms-timeout> [REPLICATE <count>] [DELAY <sec>] [RETRY <sec>] [TTL <sec>] [MAXLEN <count>] [ASYNC]
You can pass any optional arguments as a hash, for example:
disque.push("foo", "myjob", 1000, ttl: 1, async: true)
async is a special case because it's just a flag. That's
true must be passed as its value.
Then, your workers will do something like this:
loop do client.fetch(from: ["foo"]) do |job| # Do something with `job` end end
fetch command receives an array of queues, and optionally a
timeout (in milliseconds) and the
count of jobs to retrieve:
client.fetch(from: ["bar", "baz"], count: 10, timeout: 2000)
You can install it using rubygems.
$ gem install disque
