Ruby Queue

Open-source Ruby projects categorized as Queue

Top 18 Ruby Queue Projects

  • Sidekiq

    Simple, efficient background processing for Ruby

    Project mention: Redis Re-Implemented with SQLite | | 2024-04-14

    That depends on how the `maxmemory-policy` is configured, and queue systems based on Redis will tell you not to allow eviction. (it even logs a warnings if it detects your Redis is misconfigured IIRC).

  • Resque

    Resque is a Redis-backed Ruby library for creating background jobs, placing them on multiple queues, and processing them later.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • Delayed::Job

    Database based asynchronous priority queue system -- Extracted from Shopify

  • Sucker Punch

    Sucker Punch is a Ruby asynchronous processing library using concurrent-ruby, heavily influenced by Sidekiq and girl_friday.

    Project mention: Simple Thread/Server question | /r/rails | 2023-06-06

    I would suggest you use something like sucker punch to do this

  • good_job

    Multithreaded, Postgres-based, Active Job backend for Ruby on Rails.

    Project mention: Tuning Rails application structure | | 2024-02-15

    Once we are done with default gems, should we look into something we usually use? That's jwt because we need session tokens for our API. Next comes our one and only sidekiq. For a long period of time it was the best in town solution for background jobs. Now we could also consider solid_queue or good_job. In development and testing groups we need rspec-rails, factory_bot_rails and ffaker. Dealing with money? Start doing it properly from the beginning! Do not forget to install money-rails. Once everything is added to the Gemfile do not forget to trigger bundle install.

  • Que

    A Ruby job queue that uses PostgreSQL's advisory locks for speed and reliability.

    Project mention: Choose Postgres Queue Technology | | 2023-09-24

    > Can you define "low throughput"?

    <1000 messages per minute

    Not saying SKIP LOCKED can't work with that many. But you'll probably want to do something better.

    FWIW, Que uses advisory locks [1]
