I need to be able to kick off a (relatively) long running process that
runs outside of the normal RoR queue. BackgrounDrb is out of the
question pretty much because shared hosts are fond of killing it. I
don’t necessarily need a process like backgroundrb running because I
don’t need access to these processes once they start. However, they
do need access to my models.
The solution could be as simple as kicking off an external ruby
script, letting it run and finish all on its own.
Any ideas on this?
