That's a fair point - in general one would want to decouple production
from consumption.

It sounds to me that you are looking for some kind of trigger that is
based on queue depth - like you were maintaining a buffet at a
restaurant. Maybe you can elaborate on your actual use case so that we
can put this into context.

Should your application be contingent on a specific depth, you may
consider polling depth on a per-queue basis and conditionally starting

If it is OTOH dependent on a batch of work being pre-initialized, then
you could consider sending a poison pill that would signify the
completion of the production phase.
