XF 2.0 how to tell job rebuilder to be less optimistic with batch size


Well-known member
I start a job rebuilder with a batch size of 1, he rebuilds one item fetching data with guzzle and thinks "that was so quick, I scale linear and will fetch 200 more items the next batch". Unfortunately that's when I get the error message like below. Currently I use sleep(5) at the end of the rebuild job function and this works nice, but now that job takes the time of a full lunch break.

You could do something like:

$this->data['batch'] = min($this->data['batch'], 20);
to set a limit (change 20 to whatever the maximum should be)

We have places that would do multiple requests (like sitemaps or page title conversions), so I doubt it's that.

We'd likely need to see the code in question.
