Some time ago i needed to run a big task on GAE putting it in a queue with some special settings. The best option was to write mapreduce job for it but documentation did not mention anything about possibility to select queue for given mapreduce. After some time i founded that it is possible! Just as always, documentation is not complete.. But ok, to have a possibility to select a queue just use name: queue_name. For example:
- name: Some awesome task mapper: input_reader: mapreduce.input_readers.DatastoreInputReader handler: app1.my_task params: - name: entity_kind default: app1.models.World - name: namespace default: my_namespace - name: queue_name default: "backups"
That's all. Maybe it will help someone.
