The Zend Platform Job Queue is used to make applications more responsive by allowing tasks to be performed on other machines (e.g.: dedicated machine), and scheduling tasks to a future time (usually to low-traffic hours). Moreover, Job Queue supports more complex application-level logic such as recurring jobs, job dependencies, job priorities, different scheduling algorithms (by priority, application etc.), easy detection and handling of failed jobs. Job Queue offers both a web-based management UI, and a programmer-oriented rich API, which allows embedding sophisticated logic into applications.
