The recommended setup for the queue is to use Supervisor.
Supervisor is a process manager which makes managing a number of long-running programs a trivial task by providing a consistent interface through which they can be monitored and controlled.
[program:cachet-queue] command=php artisan queue:work --daemon --delay=2 --sleep=1 --tries=3 directory=/var/www/cachet/ redirect_stderr=true autostart=true autorestart=true user=cachet
[program:cachet-queue] command=php artisan queue:work --delay=1 --sleep=1 --timeout=1800 --tries=3 directory=/var/www/cachet/ redirect_stderr=true autostart=true autorestart=true user=cachet
Update to your configuration!
Be sure to update the values in the example configuration above to match your installation setup.
The default installation of Cachet sets the queue type to
database which means that all jobs are stored within your database and is then processed by a cron job which calls an artisan command from within the project directory.
You'll need to create a new cron job, in Ubuntu it's a case of running
crontab -e and adding this line:
* * * * * php /path/to/artisan schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1
Close the file and the cron job will now begin running, processing any confirmation and incident emails.
If you cannot add a queue job, another alternative is to process all of the jobs immediately after they are created.
Not suitable for larger installations!
This setup is not ideal for larger installs with hundreds of subscribers as each email can take a few seconds to send and would slow down your interaction with the system.
To set this up change the
.env file with the following setting:
