Resque Pool and NewRelic
require 'resque/pool/tasks'
# this task will get called before resque:pool:setup
# preload the rails environment in the pool master
task "resque:setup" => :environment do
# generic worker setup, e.g. Hoptoad for failed jobs
task "resque:pool:setup" do
# close any sockets or files in pool master
# and re-open them in the resque worker parent
Resque::Pool.after_prefork do |job|
NewRelic::Agent.after_fork(:force_reconnect => true)

After running this in production for a while, I have to say: Don't do this. For some reason, jobs just silently fail and die.
