When Delayed Job starts hogging too much of the CPU and memory and load average goes up.


  1. Take a look at the jobs that are currently running:

    Code Block
    ps aux | grep delayed_job
    sudo service avalon_delayed_job status
    #You can also look at the stored pids here
    #but restarting delayed job should take care of it.
    cd tmp/pids

  2. Kill Previous Delayed Job using a regular kill command and waiting a little while. If that doesn't work, ramp up to a kill -9.

  3. Restart delayed job.

    Code Block
    sudo service avalon_delayed_job start
