Built-in metrics for Sidekiq monitoring out of the box! Part of the yabeda suite.


gem 'yabeda-sidekiq'
# Then add monitoring system adapter, e.g.:
# gem 'yabeda-prometheus'

And then execute:

$ bundle

And that is it! Sidekiq metrics are being collected!

Additionally, depending on your adapter, you may want to setup metrics export. E.g. for yabeda-prometheus:

# config/initializers/sidekiq or elsewhere
Sidekiq.configure_server do |_config|


  • Total number of executed jobs: sidekiq_jobs_executed_total - (segmented by queue and class name)
  • Number of jobs have been finished successfully: sidekiq_jobs_success_total (segmented by queue and class name)
  • Number of jobs have been failed: sidekiq_jobs_failed_total (segmented by queue and class name)
  • Time of job run: sidekiq_job_runtime (seconds per job execution, segmented by queue and class name)
  • Number of jobs in queues: sidekiq_jobs_waiting_count (segmented by queue)
  • Number of scheduled jobs:sidekiq_jobs_scheduled_count
  • Number of jobs in retry set: sidekiq_jobs_retry_count
  • Number of jobs in dead set (“morgue”): sidekiq_jobs_dead_count
  • Active workers count: sidekiq_active_processes
  • Active processes count: sidekiq_active_workers_count

Roadmap (TODO or Help wanted)

  • Implement optional segmentation of retry/schedule/dead sets

    It should be disabled by default as it requires to iterate over all jobs in sets and may be very slow on large sets.

  • Maybe add some hooks for ease of plugging in metrics for myriads of Sidekiq plugins?
