a simple nodejs service to avoid memory leaking when use kue to process millions of jobs by removing kue job immediately upon its completion
kue is a handy redis-backed job processing module. But when using kue for processing millions of jobs, we have met following circumstances incuring memory leaking.
- job related search sets remain in redis after job got removed
- Job handling service crash causes job pilling in redis
So I wrote this little tool to run as a standalone service (via forever) which will keep watching kue and remove kue job immediately upon its completion
Install forever tool
npm install forever -g
Install the kue-sweeper
npm install kue-sweeper
# start kue-sweeper with forever./forever-start-kue-sweep.sh
- -p --port , redis service port
- -h, --host [VALUE], redis service host
