View Source Oban.Plugins.Gossip (Oban v2.13.4)

The Gossip plugin uses PubSub to periodically exchange queue state information between all interested nodes. This allows Oban instances to broadcast state information regardless of which engine they are using, and without storing anything in the database.

Gossip enables real-time updates across an entire cluster, and is essential to the operation of UIs like Oban Web.

The Gossip plugin entirely replaced heartbeats and the legacy oban_beats table.

Override the default options to broadcast every 5 seconds:

config :my_app, Oban,
  plugins: [{Oban.Plugins.Gossip, interval: :timer.seconds(5)}],
  ...
