Queue configuration

Queue is configured using config file and/or using environment variables. If both are in use then latter takes precedence.

Configuring with config file#

Queue process expects config file at /config/queue.json during startup. Config file might be placed either by creating new docker image based on queue image or by mounting host directory from caller side.

Possible queue configuration file:

  "checkAgainTimeInterval": 30,
  "queuePort": 41000,
  "globalAnalyticsConfiguration" : {
    "kibanaConfiguration": {
      "endpoints": [
      "indexPattern": "emcee-queue"
    "graphiteConfiguration": {
      "socketAddress": "",
      "metricPrefix": "emcee.queue"

checkAgainTimeInterval - time between buckets requests for worker,

queuePort - port on which queue will run,

globalAnalyticsConfiguration - configuration for queue analytics, kibanaConfiguration and graphiteConfiguration are optional.

Block testHistoryService defines test histroy service configuration. Based on it test hostory service may use different storages. Learn more.

Configuring with container environment variables#
