Resque is a Redis-backed ruby library for creating background jobs, placing those jobs on multiple queues, and processing them later. Unlike Sidekiq (a well-designed & well-maintained alternative!) it forks a new process for each job, which makes it resilient to memory leaks and eliminates thread-safety concerns. It’s been battle-tested with high production loads and has a robust ecosystem of plugins to fill various needs.
