If you are using this with Rails, you don’t need to require it as it’s done automatically.
To use this Gem in other Ruby projects, just add
Specify limits which you want to place on queues inside sidekiq.yml:
:limits: queue_name1: 5 queue_name2: 10
Or set it dynamically in your code:
Sidekiq::Queue['queue_name1'].limit = 5 Sidekiq::Queue['queue_name2'].limit = 10
In these examples, tasks for the
queue_name1 will be run by at most 5 workers at the same time and the
queue_name2 will have no more than 10 workers simultaneously.
Ability to set limits dynamically allows you to resize worker distribution among queues any time you want.
Limits per process
If you use multiple sidekiq processes then you can specify limits per process:
:process_limits: queue_name: 2
Or set it in your code:
Sidekiq::Queue['queue_name'].process_limit = 2
Busy workers by queue
You can see how many workers currently handling a queue:
Sidekiq::Queue['name'].busy # number of busy workers
You can also pause your queues temporarily. Upon continuing their limits
will be preserved.
Sidekiq::Queue['name'].pause # prevents workers from running tasks from this queue Sidekiq::Queue['name'].paused? # => true Sidekiq::Queue['name'].unpause # allows workers to use the queue Sidekiq::Queue['name'].pause_for_ms(1000) # will pause for a second
