Can I queue jobs up for later processing?

[3 Grey Star Level]

Can I use a gem like delayed_job to have long-running processed occur later? I was reading the docs, and it looks like I need to install the daemon gem. Wasn’t sure if I could start a daemon process or not.

If not, is there a recommended way to run background jobs so they won’t tie up the server?

Hi Tad,

Daemons and processes running in the background are not permitted on our managed services. If you need to schedule processes for later times, a cron job would be the way to go.

Thanks. That’s good to know before I get too far down the path of developing using that model.
