Delayed Job Question

Hello People,

I just want to know how the delay job gem works. I am confused how it
detects when the server is having less load and does computing intensive
job at that time.

Or it just tries to do some thing, if it fails, waits for random time
and does it again?

DelayedJob just creates anotar thread and a send the email or execute
the method on parallel without stop the ruby thread! You can set a delay
to call the method but it does not works as you throught!

:wink:

It doesn’t. You run separate delayed job workers that try to process the
queue of delayed jobs as fast as they can. Delayed job isn’t about
waiting
for a less busy time - it’s mostly about decoupling the job result from
the
http response.

and does it again?

If a job does fail it does exponential backoff, upto a configurable limit
(a default of 25 attempts I think)
