This was very helpful for me. Thanks for sharing.
I'm using delayed_job (Rails 3.1) on Heroku. It seems to stall a lot, and can be tricky to start workers. I'm constantly paranoid that delayed_job may have fallen asleep and jobs are piling up in the queue (this happens pretty often, actually). Anyone know of any good resources for getting delayed_job to work reliably on Heroku? I installed the 'daemons' gem, but I generally just run "heroku rake jobs: work" to get things going again.
I'm sure I'm just doing it wrong, but I can't find too much out there to help me get everything set up to run efficiently.
