Laravel Scheduled Jobs consuming all server resources

Posted 4 months ago by longestdrive


I've recently upgraded a site to Laravel 5.5. The site (like others I have) use a cron job on the deployed server to run the scheduled commands. The CRON runs every minute.

One of the commands is to run the queue jobs and I use this command:


I've had no problems up until now. But now it gradually consumes all the server resources to the point where other sites I run on the vps start falling down and affecting mysql connections across all sites.

I regularly get failed mysql connections.

On checking the server process the queue:work consumes alot of resources.

Is there something I'm doing wrong or a better way to run the queue jobs? Pulling my hair out on this
