Using celery with SQS

‹ MessagePack vs JSON vs BSON | Install ruby gems without root access in your home directory ›

Some notes about using celery with SQS:

  • acks_late does not seem to work
  • sending a task that's larger than the SQS message size limit fails with <?xml version="1.0"?><Error><Type>Sender</Type><Code>InvalidParameterValue</Code><Message>Value for parameter MessageBody is invalid. Reason: Message body must be shorter than 262144 bytes.</Message><Detail/></Error>
