Using Sidekiq with Procfile and Capistrano (example)

Here is an example configuration for using Sidekiq with our Procfile support and Capistrano.

Sidekiq specific steps in lib/capistrano/tasks/sidekiq.rake. Please make sure the roles meet your needs:

# frozen_string_literal: true namespace :sidekiq do desc 'quiet all sidekiq processes so they stop accepting new jobs' task :quiet do on roles :cron do # The TSTP signal tells sidekiq to quiet all workers. # see: invoke('opscomplete:supervisor:signal_procs', 'TSTP', 'sidekiq') end end desc 'print a backtrace for all sidekiq threads to the logfile' task :trace do on roles :cron do # The TTIN signal tells sidekiq to print a backtrace for all threads to the logfile. # see: invoke('opscomplete:supervisor:signal_procs', 'TTIN', 'sidekiq') end end desc 'shuts down all sidekiq processes within the configured timout' task :term do on roles :cron do # The TERM signal tells sidekiq to kill quiet all processes for the configured timout time and then kill them. # see: invoke('opscomplete:supervisor:signal_procs', 'TERM', 'sidekiq') end end end

Sidekiq/Supervisor specific hooks for config/deploy.rb:

# Update and Restart supervisor config after 'deploy:starting', 'sidekiq:quiet' after 'deploy:updating', 'opscomplete:supervisor:gen_config' after 'deploy:published', 'opscomplete:supervisor:restart_procs' # Terminate sidekiq quiet processes (new processes get started by supervisor) after 'deploy:failed', 'sidekiq:term'

You Procfile should include e.g. this command for running sidekiq:

sidekiq: bundle exec sidekiq --config config/sidekiq.yml
