delayed_job vs RabbitMQ: What are the differences?
Developers describe delayed_job as "Database backed asynchronous priority queue -- Extracted from Shopify". Delayed_job (or DJ) encapsulates the common pattern of asynchronously executing longer tasks in the background. It is a direct extraction from Shopify where the job table is responsible for a multitude of core tasks. On the other hand, RabbitMQ is detailed as "A messaging broker - an intermediary for messaging". RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received.
delayed_job can be classified as a tool in the "Background Processing" category, while RabbitMQ is grouped under "Message Queue".
"Easy to get started" is the top reason why over 2 developers like delayed_job, while over 203 developers mention "It's fast and it works with good metrics/monitoring" as the leading cause for choosing RabbitMQ.
delayedjob and RabbitMQ are both open source tools. It seems that RabbitMQ with 5.95K GitHub stars and 1.78K forks on GitHub has more adoption than delayedjob with 4.46K GitHub stars and 915 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, RabbitMQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 940 company stacks & 549 developers stacks; compared to delayed_job, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
