Celery Received unregistered task of type (run example)

I'm trying to run example from Celery documentation.

I run:

celeryd --loglevel=INFO


/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/celery/loaders/default.py:64: NotConfigured: No 'celeryconfig' module found! Please make sure it exists and is available to Python.
"is available to Python." % (configname, )))

tasks.py:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from celery.task import task

@task
def add(x, y):
return x + y


run_task.py:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from tasks import add
result = add.delay(4, 4)
print (result)
print (result.ready())
print (result.get())


In same folder celeryconfig.py:

CELERY_IMPORTS = ("tasks", )
CELERY_RESULT_BACKEND = "amqp"
BROKER_URL = "amqp://guest:guest@localhost:5672//"
CELERY_TASK_RESULT_EXPIRES = 300


When I run "run_task.py":

on python console

eb503f77-b5fc-44e2-ac0b-91ce6ddbf153
False


errors on celeryd server

[2012-03-19 04:34:14,913: ERROR/MainProcess] Received unregistered task of type 'tasks.add'.
The message has been ignored and discarded.

Did you remember to import the module containing this task?
Or maybe you are using relative imports?
Please see http://bit.ly/gLye1c for more information.

The full contents of the message body was:
{'retries': 0, 'task': 'tasks.add', 'utc': False, 'args': (4, 4), 'expires': None, 'eta': None, 'kwargs': {}, 'id': '841bc21f-8124-436b-92f1-e3b62cafdfe7'}

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/celery/worker/consumer.py", line 444, in receive_message
self.strategies[name](message, body, message.ack_log_error)
KeyError: 'tasks.add'


Please explain what's the problem.

Answer

You can see the current list of registered tasks in the celery.registry.TaskRegistry class. Could be that your celeryconfig (in the current directory) is not in PYTHONPATH so celery can't find it and falls back to defaults. Simply specify it explicitly when starting celery.

celeryd --loglevel=INFO --settings=celeryconfig

You can also set --loglevel=DEBUG and you should probably see the problem immediately.
