Not exactly how others do, but mechanism is something like this:

class HelloWorker < BackgrounDRb::MetaWorker
  set_worker_name :hello_worker
  def enque_task args
     thread_pool.defer(args) do |block_args|
        # do some work here
    end
  end
end

>From Controller:

MiddleMan.worker(:hello_worker).enque_task(some_data)

So depending upon your thread pool size, that many of tasks will run
concurrently and rest of them will be in queue.
