a simple nodejs service to avoid memory leaking when use kue to process millions of jobs by removing kue job immediately upon its completion

Why need this module:

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.

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


  • -p --port , redis service port
  • -h, --host [VALUE], redis service host
