kue-scheduler

Build Status Dependency Status npm version

A job scheduler utility for kue, backed by redis and built for node.js with support of schedules restore on system restart.

Scheduling API is heavily inspired and borrowed from agenda and others.

Note!: expiry key notification are now enabled by default, if provided kue options has a permission to do so unless explicit disabled by passing skipConfig option when creating kue instance

Note!: kue-scheduler v0.6.0 is a refactored version of previous kue-scheduler to allow redis data structure and schedule queue best practice. API is the same but some of internal working may not work as previous ones

Requirements

$ redis-cli config set notify-keyspace-events Ex

Installation

$ npm install --save kue kue-scheduler

Usage

Schedule a non unique job to run every after specified time interval

Use this if you want to maintain different(multiple) job instances on every run

Example schedule a job to run every two seconds from now

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//create a job instance
var job = Queue
            .createJob('every', data)
            .attempts(3)
            .backoff(backoff)
            .priority('normal');
 
//schedule it to run every 2 seconds
Queue.every('2 seconds', job);
 
 
//somewhere process your scheduled jobs
Queue.process('every', function(job, done) {
    ...
    done();
});

Schedule a unique job to run every after specified time interval

Use this if you want to maintain a single job instance on every run.

Example schedule a job to run every two seconds from now

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//create a job instance
var job = Queue
            .createJob('unique_every', data)
            .attempts(3)
            .backoff(backoff)
            .priority('normal')
            .unique('unique_every');
 
//schedule it to run every 2 seconds
Queue.every('2 seconds', job);
 
 
//somewhere process your scheduled jobs
Queue.process('unique_every', function(job, done) {
    ...
    done();
});

Schedule a unique job to run every after specified time interval, using cron and timezone

Example schedule a job to run every 10 seconds from now see http://momentjs.com/timezone/ for timezones names.

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//create a job instance
var job = Queue
            .createJob('unique_every', { timezone: 'Europe/Amsterdam' })
            .attempts(3)
            .backoff(backoff)
            .priority('normal')
            .unique('unique_every');
 
//schedule it to run every 10 seconds
Queue.every('*/10 * * * * *', job);
 
 
//somewhere process your scheduled jobs
Queue.process('unique_every', function(job, done) {
    ...
    done();
});

Schedule a non unique job to run only once after specified interval elapsed

Use this if you want to maintain different(multiple) job instances on every run

Example schedule a job to run only once two seconds from now

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//create a job instance
var job = Queue
            .createJob('schedule', data)
            .attempts(3)
            .backoff(backoff)
            .priority('normal');
 
//schedule it to run once 2 seconds from now
Queue.schedule('2 seconds from now', job);
 
 
//somewhere process your scheduled jobs
Queue.process('schedule', function(job, done) {
    ...
    done();
});

Schedule a unique job to run only once after specified interval elapsed

Use this if you want to maintain a single job instance on every run.

Example schedule a job to run only once two seconds from now

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//create a job instance
var job = Queue
            .createJob('unique_schedule', data)
            .attempts(3)
            .backoff(backoff)
            .priority('normal')
            .unique('unique_schedule');
 
//schedule it to run once 2 seconds from now
Queue.schedule('2 seconds from now', job);
 
 
//somewhere process your scheduled jobs
Queue.process('unique_schedule', function(job, done) {
    ...
    done();
});

Schedule a job to run now

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//create a job instance
var job = Queue
            .createJob('now', data)
            .attempts(3)
            .backoff(backoff)
            .priority('normal');
 
//schedule it to run now
Queue.now(job);
 
 
//somewhere process your scheduled jobs
Queue.process('now', function(job, done) {
    ...
    done();
});

Options

kue-scheduler support all kue options with addition of the following

  • restore:boolen - tells kue-scheduler to try to restore schedules in case of restarts or other causes. By default its not enable. When enable use restore error and restore success queue events to communicate with the scheduler.

Example

var options = {
        prefix: 'w',
        skipConfig: false,
        redis: {
          port: 6379,
          host: '127.0.0.1',
          db: 2
        },
        restore: true
      };
...
 
Queue = kue.createQueue(options);
 
  • worker:boolen - tells kue-scheduler to listen and process job. Default to true. If set to false you need another kue-scheduler instance to process the scheduled jobs from other process

Example

//create scheduler instance(process)
var scheduler = kue.createQueue({
    restore:true,
    worker:false
});
 
//in separate process create an instance that will process works
var worker = kue.createQueue({
    restore:true,
    worker:true
});
worker.process(...);
 
...
 
  • skipConfig:boolen - tells kue-scheduler to skip enabling enabling key expiry notification. Example
//create scheduler instance(process) with skipConfig
var scheduler = kue.createQueue({
    skipConfig:true
});

Note! if you experience the following error: ReplyError: ERR unknown command 'config', which will happen if you're using a redis instance with the config command disabled (AWS Elasticache for example) you must call createQueue with the skipConfig option and manually ensure that the notify-keyspace-events configuration key is set to Ex.

API

clear(done)

Clear all kue and kue-scheduler redis data. Clean up if performed atomically with fail all or success all guarantee.

Example

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//perform cleanup
Queue.clear(function(error,response){
    ...
});

enableExpiryNotifications()

Enable redis key expiry notifications.

Example

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//enable expiry key notifications
Queue.enableExpiryNotifications();

every(interval, job, [done])

Runs a given job instance every after a given interval. If unique key is provided only single instance job will exists otherwise on every run new job instance will be used.

interval can either be a human-interval String format or a cron String format.

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//create a job instance
var job = Queue
            .createJob('every', data)
            .attempts(3)
            .backoff(backoff)
            .priority('normal');
 
//schedule it to run every 2 seconds
Queue.every('2 seconds', job);
 
 
//somewhere process your scheduled jobs
Queue.process('every', function(job, done) {
    ...
    done();
});

schedule(when, job)

Schedules a given job instance to run once at a given time. when can either be a Date instance or a date.js String such as tomorrow at 5pm. If unique key is provided only single instance job will exists otherwise on every run new job istance will be used.

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//create a job instance
var job = Queue
            .createJob('schedule', data)
            .attempts(3)
            .backoff(backoff)
            .priority('normal');
 
//schedule it to run once 2 seconds from now
Queue.schedule('2 seconds from now', job);
 
 
//somewhere process your scheduled jobs
Queue.process('schedule', function(job, done) {
    ...
    done();
});

now(job)

Schedules a given job instance to run once immediately.

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//create a job instance
var job = Queue
            .createJob('now', data)
            .attempts(3)
            .backoff(backoff)
            .priority('normal');
 
//schedule it to run now
Queue.now(job);
 
//somewhere process your scheduled jobs
Queue.process('now', function(job, done) {
    ...
    done();
});

remove([id|job|criteria], done)

Remove either scheduled job with its expiry key and schedule data or non-scheduled job. A criteria may contain jobExpiryKey, jobDataKey or unique identifier of the job in case of unique jobs

Example: Remove every schedule job

//using instance
Queue.remove(`<jobInstance>`, function(error, response) {
    ...
});
 
//using id
Queue.remove(`<jobId>`, function(error, response) {
    ...
});
 
//using criteria
Queue.remove({
    unique: 'every_mail'
}, function(error, response) {
    ...
});

Example: Remove scheduled or now job

//using instance
Queue.remove(`<jobInstance>`, function(error, response) {
    ...
});
 
//using id
Queue.remove(`<jobId>`, function(error, response) {
    ...
});
 
//using criteria
Queue.remove({
    unique: 'every_mail'
}, function(error, response) {
    ...
});

restore(done)

Enforce kue-scheduler to restore schedules in cases that may cause your application to miss redis key expiry events. You may enable restore using options but in some scenario you may invoke restore by yourself.

Example

var kue = require('kue-scheduler');
var Queue = kue.createQueue();
 
//perform cleanup
Queue.restore(function(error, schedules){
    ...
 
});

Events

Currently the only way to interact with kue-scheduler is through its events. kue-scheduler fires schedule error, schedule success, already scheduled,lock error, unlock error, restore success, restore error and scheduler unknown job expiry key events.

schedule error

Use it to interact with kue-scheduler to get notified when an error occur.

//listen on scheduler errors
Queue.on('schedule error', function(error) {
    ...
});
 
var job = Queue
    .createJob('now', data)
    .attempts(3)
    .backoff(backoff)
    .priority('normal');
 
Queue.now(job);

schedule success

Use it to interact with kue-scheduler to obtained instance of current scheduled job.

Note: Use this event to attach instance level job events

//listen on success scheduling
Queue.on('schedule success', function(job) {
    ...
});
 
var job = Queue
    .createJob('now', data)
    .attempts(3)
    .backoff(backoff)
    .priority('normal');
 
Queue.now(job);

already scheduled

Use it to interact with kue-scheduler to be notified if the current instance of job is unique and already schedule to run.

Note: Use this event to attach instance level job events

//listen on already scheduled jobs
Queue.on('already scheduled', function(job) {
    ...
});
 
var job = Queue
    .createJob('now', data)
    .attempts(3)
    .backoff(backoff)
    .priority('normal');
 
Queue.now(job);

lock error

Use it to interact with kue-scheduler to get notified when a lock error occured.

//listen on scheduler errors
Queue.on('lock error', function(error) {
    ...
});
 
var job = Queue
    .createJob('now', data)
    .attempts(3)
    .backoff(backoff)
    .priority('normal');
 
Queue.now(job);

unlock error

Use it to interact with kue-scheduler to get notified when unlock error occured.

//listen on scheduler errors
Queue.on('unlock error', function(error) {
    ...
});
 
var job = Queue
    .createJob('now', data)
    .attempts(3)
    .backoff(backoff)
    .priority('normal');
 
Queue.now(job);

scheduler unknown job expiry key

Fired when kue-scheduler receive unknown key event from redis. Use it to be notified on unknown key(s) events.

Queue
    .on('scheduler unknown job expiry key', function(message) {
 
        expect(Queue._isJobExpiryKey(message)).to.be.false;
 
    });

restore success

Fired when kue-scheduler successfully restore previous schedules.

Queue
    .on('restore success', function() {
    
    ...
 
    });

restore error

Fired when kue-scheduler failed to restore previous schedules.

Queue
    .on('restore error', function(error) {
    
    ...
 
    });
