Replied to Kill Horizon Single Process After X Jobs

@bobbybouwmann processes timing that goes from 0.1 to 5 isn't so weird in some scenario, unfortunately, I already worked with them in other apps (a Symfony, it's not something related to Laravel). The queue I am talking about sometimes processes millions of messages per hour.

Thing is PHP is not so good for long-running processes. In the long run, performance decay is inevitable. In the previous app, I found my perfect tradeoff by giving each process a certain number of jobs to process before the shutdown.

I could do it manually with the work command for sure, but I would need to go outside Horizon. It seems that the current Horizon implementation gives me the possibility to define a "timeout" and a "sleep" options. However, sleep defines how much time the process must wait if no jobs are available before going down. But if jobs keep coming, nothing shuts down the process.

I tried to implement the most common solution (horizon:terminate after 10 minutes to "refresh" everything) but it's not enough. I will need a more granular control :D

If anyone has an idea about how to proceed with Horizon, it's welcome! Thanks for your answer

Started a new Conversation Kill Horizon Single Process After X Jobs


I am working with Horizon, and I have a problem. Due to the PHP way of working with long-running processes, I stumble upon some performance issues with some queues processing.

When I start my consumers, jobs in these queues are processed in ~0.1s. After 10 minutes, runtime skyrockets to 5s.

Is it possible to specify to kill a specific horizon process after it processes, let's say, ten jobs?

Thanks a lot!
