celeryd [-c processes] [-f logfile] [-l loglevel] [-n hostname] [-B] [-E] [--discard]


This manual page documents briefly the celeryd command.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

celeryd is a program that starts the Celery Worker Daemon.


This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

-c --concurrency

Number of child processes processing the queue. The default is the number of CPUs available on your system.

-f --logfile

Path to log file. If no logfile is specified, stderr is used.

-l --loglevel

Logging level, choose between DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, ERROR, CRITICAL, or FATAL.

-n --hostname

Set custom hostname.

-B --beat

Also run the celerybeat periodic task scheduler. Please note that there must only be one instance of this service.

-E --events

Send events that can be captured by monitors like celerymon.


Discard all waiting tasks before the daemon is started. WARNING: This is unrecoverable, and the tasks will be deleted from the messaging server.
