Kill stuck Resque workers Jump to Story

ito Botta sent us a note about a Bash script he wrote that automatically kills stuck Resque workers and retries failed job. He noticed that out of the 160 million jobs he had been running, 43,000 had failed and most of them had been retried successfully except for a few thousand who were simply stuck because of excessive load, networking issues or simply race conditions. Using shell commands, this script kills the stuck Resque workers and retries the corresponding failed jobs. Apparently, this helped him keep things stable enough to not have to intervene manually in production.
