I have seen this now on 2 instances (here on meta and on another site)
The symptoms are
- A very large number of jobs scheduled “now” in the scheduled tab in sidekiq
- A very rapid increase in executed jobs
What more when I try to use the API to clear it, it does not clear.
We are running Sidekiq 3.1.3, I notice we can upgrade, but as of Sidekiq 3.2 there is no support for Ruby 1.9, it will not even boot. This will officially make Discourse Ruby 2.0 and up.
I am not really sure what to do here, but we need to nail this bug somehow.
