Fireworq - Lightweight, high-performance, language-independent job queue system

  •        167

Fireworq is a lightweight, high-performance job queue system with the following abilities. It is available from ANY programming language which can talk HTTP. It works with a single binary without external dependencies. It is built on top of RDBMS (MySQL), so that jobs won't be lost even if the job queue process dies. You can apply an ordinary replication scheme to the underlying DB for the reliability of the DB itself.

It supports primary/backup nodes. Only one node becomes primary simultaneously and the others become backup nodes. A backup node will automatically be active when the primary node dies. It always works with a single dispatcher per queue which can concurrently dispatch jobs to workers via HTTP. Scalability of workers themselves should be maintained by a load balancer in the ordinary way. This means that adding a worker will never harm performance of grabbing jobs from a queue.

Bee Queue - A simple, fast, robust job/task queue for Node.js, backed by Redis

  •    Javascript

A simple, fast, robust job/task queue for Node.js, backed by Redis.Bee-Queue is meant to power a distributed worker pool and was built with short, real-time jobs in mind. A web server can enqueue a job, wait for a worker process to complete it, and return its results within an HTTP request. Scaling is as simple as running more workers.

Celery - Distributed Task Queue

  •    Python

Celery is an asynchronous task queue/job queue based on distributed message passing. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well. The execution units, called tasks, are executed concurrently on a single or more worker servers using multiprocessing, Eventlet, or gevent. Tasks can execute asynchronously (in the background) or synchronously (wait until ready).

react-native-queue - A React Native Job Queue

  •    Javascript

A React Native at-least-once priority job queue / task queue backed by persistent Realm storage. Jobs will persist until completed, even if user closes and re-opens app. React Native Queue is easily integrated into OS background processes (services) so you can ensure the queue will continue to process until all jobs are completed even if app isn't in focus. It also plays well with Workers so your jobs can be thrown on the queue, then processed in dedicated worker threads for greatly improved processing performance. React Native Queue is designed to be a swiss army knife for task management in React Native. It abstracts away the many annoyances related to processing complex tasks, like durability, retry-on-failure, timeouts, chaining processes, and more. Just throw your jobs onto the queue and relax - they're covered.

Resque - Job queue in Ruby

  •    Ruby

Resque is a Redis-backed Ruby library for creating background jobs, placing them on multiple queues, and processing them later. Queues are picked off in order of their priority. A job from a lower priority queue will only be picked off if there are no jobs for a higher priority queue available.

Sidekiq - Simple, efficient background processing for Ruby

  •    Ruby

Simple, efficient background processing for Ruby. Sidekiq uses threads to handle many jobs at the same time in the same process. It does not require Rails but will integrate tightly with Rails 3/4 to make background processing dead simple. Sidekiq uses multithreading so it is much more memory efficient than Resque (which forks a new process for every job).


goworker - Go-based background worker

  •    Go

goworker is a Go-based background worker that runs 10 to 100,000* times faster than Ruby-based workers. goworker is compatible with Resque, so you can push your jobs with Rails and Resque, and consume them with Go in the background

Faktory - "Takin' care of business, workin' overtime"

  •    Go

At a high level, Faktory is a work server. It is the repository for background jobs within your application. Jobs have a type and a set of arguments and are placed into queues for workers to fetch and execute.You can use this server to distribute jobs to one or hundreds of machines. Jobs can be executed with any language by clients using the Faktory API to fetch a job from a queue.

There may continue to be specific use-cases for firebase-queue, however if you're looking for a general purpose, scalable queueing system for Firebase then it is likely that building on top of Google Cloud Functions for Firebase is the ideal route. A fault-tolerant, multi-worker, multi-stage job pipeline built on the Firebase Realtime Database.

rq - Simple job queues for Python

  •    Python

RQ (Redis Queue) is a simple Python library for queueing jobs and processing them in the background with workers. It is backed by Redis and it is designed to have a low barrier to entry. It should be integrated in your web stack easily.RQ requires Redis >= 2.7.0.

Gearman - Application Framework to farm out work to other Machines

  •    C

Gearman provides a generic application framework to farm out work to other machines or processes that are better suited to do the work. It allows you to do work in parallel by doing load balancing. It also supports to call functions between languages. It is the nervous system for how distributed processing communicates. It is fault tolerant.

qless - Queue / Pipeline Management

  •    Ruby

Qless is a powerful Redis-based job queueing system inspired by resque, but built on a collection of Lua scripts, maintained in the qless-core repo. A job is a unit of work identified by a job id or jid. A queue can contain several jobs that are scheduled to be run at a certain time, several jobs that are waiting to run, and jobs that are currently running. A worker is a process on a host, identified uniquely, that asks for jobs from the queue, performs some process associated with that job, and then marks it as complete. When it's completed, it can be put into another queue.
