There are additional steps to pass if you want to use the plugin in Sidekiq mode :
(step 1) Install Redis Server
root# apt-get update root# apt-get install redis-server
(step 2) Install the Sidekiq plugin
Before installing the plugin, stop Redmine!
root# su - redmine redmine$ cd REDMINE_ROOT/plugins redmine$ git clone https://github.com/ogom/redmine_sidekiq.git redmine$ cd REDMINE_ROOT redmine$ bundle install --without development test
(step 3) Switch mode
Go in Administration -> Redmine Git Hosting -> Sidekiq tab then enable Sidekiq mode.
From this point, all actions on projects or repositories are queued in the Redis database.
To execute them you must now run the Sidekiq worker.
(step 4) Run Sidekiq worker
A startup script
contrib/scripts/sidekiq_git_hosting.sh is provided by the plugin.
You should place this script in Redmine user’s home bin dir like :
Normally the Redmine user’s bin directory should be in the
If not, add this in
# Set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" fi
(Notes) Sidekiq :: Concurrency
When running in Sidekiq mode, do not modify
sidekiq.yml, particularly the
Tasks are async but cannot be parallels as we need to write in a file.
Hence the sidekiq worker is a one-queue worker and tasks are stacked in order in the queue.
concurrency parameter would break the order of tasks and could lead to an inconsistent state of the Gitolite configuration file.
