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 to make background processing dead simple.
|Version||Latency||Garbage created for 10k jobs||Time to process 100k jobs||Throughput||Ruby|
|Sidekiq 6.0.0||3 ms||156 MB||19 sec||5200 jobs/sec||MRI 2.6.3|
|Sidekiq 4.0.0||10 ms||151 MB||22 sec||4500 jobs/sec|
|Sidekiq 3.5.1||22 ms||1257 MB||125 sec||800 jobs/sec|
|Resque 1.25.2||-||-||420 sec||240 jobs/sec|
|DelayedJob 4.1.1||-||-||465 sec||215 jobs/sec|
This benchmark can be found in
bin/sidekiqload and assumes a Redis network latency of 1ms.
- Redis: 4.0+
- Ruby: MRI 2.5+ or JRuby 9.2+.
Sidekiq 6.0 supports Rails 5.0+ but does not require it.
gem install sidekiq
