Overview

A Resque Worker processes jobs. On platforms that support fork(2), the worker will fork off a child to process each job. This ensures a clean slate when beginning the next job and cuts down on gradual memory growth as well as low level failures.

It also ensures workers are always listening to signals from you, their master, and can react accordingly.

Constructor Details

#initialize(*queues) ⇒ Worker

Workers should be initialized with an array of string queue names. The order is important: a Worker will check the first queue given for a job. If none is found, it will check the second queue name given. If a job is found, it will be processed. Upon completion, the Worker will again check the first queue given, and so forth. In this way the queue list passed to a Worker on startup defines the priorities of queues.

If passed a single “*”, this Worker will operate on all queues in alphabetical order. Queues can be dynamically added or removed without needing to restart workers using this method.

Workers should have `#prepare` called after they are initialized if you are running work on the worker.

def procline(string)

  log_with_severity :debug, $0
end

#prune_dead_workersObject

Looks for any workers which should be running on this server and, if they're not, removes them from Redis.

This is a form of garbage collection. If a server is killed by a hard shutdown, power failure, or something else beyond our control, the Resque workers will not die gracefully and therefore will leave stale state information in Redis.

By checking the current Redis state against the actual environment, we can determine if Redis is old and clean it up a bit.

#work(interval = 5.0, &block) ⇒ Object

This is the main workhorse method. Called on a Worker instance, it begins the worker life cycle.

The following events occur during a worker's life cycle:

  1. Startup: Signals are registered, dead workers are pruned,

    and this worker is registered.
    
  2. Work loop: Jobs are pulled from a queue and processed.

  3. Teardown: This worker is unregistered.

Can be passed a float representing the polling frequency. The default is 5 seconds, but for a semi-active site you may want to use a smaller value.

Also accepts a block which will be passed the job as soon as it has completed processing. Useful for testing.
