job server and scheduler for moving long-running tasks into the background
BackgrounDRb is a Ruby job server and scheduler. Its main intent is to be used with Ruby on Rails applications for offloading long-running tasks.
Since a Rails application blocks while serving a request it is best to move long-running tasks off into a background process that is divorced from http request/response cycle.
This package is part of the Ruby library extras, a supplement to Ruby's standard library.
