Beanstalk Driver

The driver works with Beanstalk queues.

Configuration example:

return [
    'bootstrap' => [
        'queue', // The component registers own console commands
    'components' => [
        'queue' => [
            'class' => \yii\queue\beanstalk\Queue::class,
            'host' => 'localhost',
            'port' => 11300,
            'tube' => 'queue',


Console command is used to execute tasks.

yii queue/listen [timeout]

listen command launches a daemon which infinitely queries the queue. If there are new tasks they're immediately obtained and executed. timeout parameter is a number of seconds to wait a job. This method is most efficient when command is properly daemonized via supervisor or systemd.

yii queue/run

run command obtains and executes tasks in a loop until queue is empty. Works well with cron.

run and listen commands have options:

  • --verbose, -v: print executing statuses into console.
  • --isolate: verbose mode of a job execute. If enabled, execute result of each job will be printed.
  • --color: highlighting for verbose mode.
yii queue/info

info command prints out information about queue status.

yii queue/remove [id]

remove command removes a job.
