Celery (Redis) results backend not working

I have a web application using Django and i am using Celery for some asynchronous tasks processing.

For Celery, i am using Rabbitmq as a broker, and Redis as a result backend.

Rabbitmq and Redis are running on the same Ubuntu 14.04 server hosted on a local virtual machine.

Celery workers are running on remote machines (Windows 10) (no worker are running on the Django server).

i have three issues (i think they are related somehow !).


  1. The tasks stay in the 'PENDING' state no matter if the tasks are succeeded or failed.

  2. the tasks doesn't retry when failed. and i get this error when trying to retry :




reject requeue=False: [WinError 10061] No connection could be made
because the target machine actively refused it



  1. The results backend doesn't seems to work.



i am also confused about my settings, and i don't know exactly where this issues might come from !

so here is my settings so far:

my_app/settings.py



# region Celery Settings
CELERY_CONCURRENCY = 1
CELERY_ACCEPT_CONTENT = ['json']
# CELERY_RESULT_BACKEND = 'redis://:C@pV@lue2016@cvc.ma:6379/0'
BROKER_URL = 'amqp://soufiaane:C@pV@lue2016@cvc.ma:5672/cvcHost'
CELERY_RESULT_SERIALIZER = 'json'
CELERY_TASK_SERIALIZER = 'json'
CELERY_ACKS_LATE = True
CELERYD_PREFETCH_MULTIPLIER = 1

CELERY_REDIS_HOST = 'cvc.ma'
CELERY_REDIS_PORT = 6379
CELERY_REDIS_DB = 0
CELERY_RESULT_BACKEND = 'redis'
CELERY_RESULT_PASSWORD = "C@pV@lue2016"
REDIS_CONNECT_RETRY = True

AMQP_SERVER = "cvc.ma"
AMQP_PORT = 5672
AMQP_USER = "soufiaane"
AMQP_PASSWORD = "C@pV@lue2016"
AMQP_VHOST = "/cvcHost"
CELERYD_HIJACK_ROOT_LOGGER = True
CELERY_HIJACK_ROOT_LOGGER = True
CELERYBEAT_SCHEDULER = 'djcelery.schedulers.DatabaseScheduler'
# endregion


my_app/celery_settings.py



from __future__ import absolute_import
from django.conf import settings
from celery import Celery
import django
import os

# set the default Django settings module for the 'celery' program.
os.environ.setdefault('DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE', 'my_app.settings')
django.setup()
app = Celery('CapValue', broker='amqp://soufiaane:C@pV@lue2016@cvc.ma/cvcHost', backend='redis://:C@pV@lue2016@cvc.ma:6379/0')

# Using a string here means the worker will not have to
# pickle the object when using Windows.
app.config_from_object('django.conf:settings')
app.autodiscover_tasks(lambda: settings.INSTALLED_APPS)


@app.task(bind=True)
def debug_task(self):
print('Request: {0!r}'.format(self.request))


my_app__init__.py



from __future__ import absolute_import

# This will make sure the app is always imported when
# Django starts so that shared_task will use this app.

from .celery_settings import app as celery_app


my_app\email\tasks.py



from __future__ import absolute_import
from my_app.celery_settings import app

# here i only define the task skeleton because i'm executing this task on remote workers !
@app.task(name='email_task', bind=True, max_retries=3, default_retry_delay=1)
def email_task(self, job, email):
try:
print("x")
except Exception as exc:
self.retry(exc=exc)


on the workers side i have one file 'tasks.py' which have the actual implementation of the task:

Worker\tasks.py



from __future__ import absolute_import
from celery.utils.log import get_task_logger
from celery import Celery


logger = get_task_logger(__name__)
app = Celery('CapValue', broker='amqp://soufiaane:C@pV@lue2016@cvc.ma/cvcHost', backend='redis://:C@pV@lue2016@cvc.ma:6379/0')

@app.task(name='email_task', bind=True, max_retries=3, default_retry_delay=1)
def email_task(self, job, email):
try:
"""
The actual implementation of the task
"""
except Exception as exc:
self.retry(exc=exc)


what i did notice though is:


  • when i change the broker settings in my workers to a bad password, i get could not connect to broker error.

  • when i change the result backend settings in my workers to a bad password, it runs normally as if everything is OK.



What could be possibly causing me those problems ?

EDIT



on my Redis server, i already enabled remote connection

/etc/redis/redis.conf



...
bind 0.0.0.0
...

Answer

My guess is that your problem is in the password. Your password has @ in it, which could be interpreted as a divider between the user:pass and the host section.

The workers stay in pending because they could not connect to the broker correctly. From celery's documentation http://docs.celeryproject.org/en/latest/userguide/tasks.html#pending

PENDING Task is waiting for execution or unknown. Any task id that is not known is implied to be in the pending state.
