Setting up queue hopping - MediaConvert

Setting up queue hopping

When you set up queue hopping, you specify the submission queue, the wait time, and the destination queue. The submission queue is the queue you want the job to go through, assuming that the wait in that queue isn't long. The wait time is the length of time, in minutes, that the job will wait in the submission queue in the SUBMITTED state before hopping over to the destination queue. The destination queue is the queue that the job moves to when it hops queues. In the most common use case, the submission queue is a reserved queue and the destination queue is an on-demand queue.

To set up queue hopping (console)

  1. On the Create job page, in the Job pane on the left, under Job settings, choose Settings.

  2. In the Job settings section on the right, choose Queue hopping.

  3. For Wait minutes, enter the time, in whole minutes, that you want the job to wait in the submission queue before hopping. You can enter a number from 1 through 1,440.

  4. For Destination queue, choose the queue that you want your job to hop to if it stays in the submission queue longer than the time you specify for Wait minutes.

  5. Optional. For Job priority, specify the priority for the job within the destination queue. For more information, see Job priority and queue hopping.

    This Job priority value applies only when a job hops queues. Jobs that are executed from their submission queue use the job priority value that you set in the usual way. For more information, see Setting the priority of a job.
