Is there a way to see what is on the task queues?

Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to visualize in the UI what’s on the task queue to see what haven’t been processed?

Thanks,
Derek

So we do not directly support this today from the UI or even the API. That being said, depending on your use case there may be some capabilities that solve your problem. Can you give me a bit more info on your use case?

I think it would be useful for

  • debugging: It’s nice to be able to see where the information goes in reference to the task queue that user set in the workflow/activity code. At least for me, I find it useful in seeing if the events are being pushed in the correct queue and just to understand what’s going on
  • It’s also useful to see what the backlog of events on the task queue are. Imagine if the your system goes down and you want to see what events are left to process. Also knowing how much events are left gives you an idea of how long it will take to recover from the backlog of queued items.

Thanks,
Derek

Are there metrics that give some information about the task backlogs?

You can use schedule to start latency metric. Without backlog it is close to 0 and keeps increasing with backlog size. We do have plans to add counts and possibly list operation for a task list.
