Beanstalkd is a Drupal module to allow Drupal Queues to take advantage of beanstalkd to process the queues instead of the built in Database queue system that ships with Drupal.

What is Beanstalkd

Beanstalk is a simple, fast workqueue service. Its interface is generic, but was originally designed for reducing the latency of page views in high-volume web applications by running time-consuming tasks asynchronously.


  • beanstalkd needs to be installed and configured.
  • a copy of pheanstalk needs to be checked out and put inside the beanstalkd module directory.
