Job Handling Enhancements with Beanstalk
Zurmo Pro received a ‘job’ makeover with the 2.6 release. By using Beanstalk, the managing and running of jobs is significantly improved. The key benefit is real-time queuing of jobs that need to go out. For example, when using crons perhaps you only process outbound email every 15 minutes, but with the implementation of the worker queue using Beanstalk, you can have emails sent out in real time. Another example is asynchronous export. This usually could take a long time to process, but now it will process much faster. The other advantage is that it reduces the load on the server since you don’t need as many cron jobs running regularly.
