I'm trying to use resque as a job runner for Rails. I've tried this config, and many other ways of demonizing the rescue task (because running rake resque:work leaves the terminal tied to that command). Unfortunately, their example configuration doesn't work for me. Does the configuration look correct? Or is there another way to turn the process into a daemon? Thank you :)
check process resque_worker_QUEUE with pidfile /data/APP_NAME/current/tmp/pids/resque_worker_QUEUE.pid start program = "/bin/sh -c 'cd /data/APP_NAME/current; RAILS_ENV=production QUEUE=queue_name VERBOSE=1 nohup rake environment resque:work& > log/resque_worker_QUEUE.log && echo $! > tmp/pids/resque_worker_QUEUE.pid'" as uid deploy and gid deploy stop program = "/bin/sh -c 'cd /data/APP_NAME/current && kill -s QUIT `cat tmp/pids/resque_worker_QUEUE.pid` && rm -f tmp/pids/resque_worker_QUEUE.pid; exit 0;'" if totalmem is greater than 300 MB for 10 cycles then restart # eating up memory?
