Worker Configuration

The worker options can be configured by command line options or by specifying a worker configuration file when running it.

The configuration file can be used to:

  • Specify default values for the worker (instead of specifying them inside the jobs themselves).

  • Specify additional advanced sidekiq configuration options.

Tip: The worker configuration file is in fact a sidekiq configuration file. Refer to the sidekiq documentation if you need more advanced options.

Sample Worker Configuration File

config/my-worker.yml
---
:concurrency: 2
:queues:
- critical
- default
- mundane

Place your YAML config file inside the config folder, and use the jobly worker --config my-worker to use it.

Note: The filename specified with the --config flag must be placed inside the config folder. You do not need to specify the folder name or the .yml extension.
