Sure. There are several "jobs" which vary a lot in terms of time to
complete and complexity. Traditionally, these jobs have always run
with a fixed priority and number of "consumers" running in one big
continuous loop. By moving these jobs to RabbitMQ, I hope to be able
to better tune the jobs by varying priorities and the number
I've already begun to experiment with this by introducing a heartbeat
exchange which does nothing other than logging the number of messages
and consumers on a queue.
As you've indicated there seems like several ways to go about this,
which is why I asked if there were any best practices or patterns.
