RabbitMQ Driver

Note: This driver has been deprecated since 2.0.2 and will be removed in 2.1. Consider using the amqp_interop driver instead.

This driver works with RabbitMQ queues.

It requires the php-amqplib/php-amqplib package.

Configuration example:

return [
    'bootstrap' => [
        'queue', // The component registers its own console commands
    'components' => [
        'queue' => [
            'class' => \yii\queue\amqp\Queue::class,
            'host' => 'localhost',
            'port' => 5672,
            'user' => 'guest',
            'password' => 'guest',
            'queueName' => 'queue',


A console command is used to execute queued jobs.

yii queue/listen [timeout]

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