While working with ElasticBeanstalk environments, one of my requirement was to send a heavy job to Worker App that takes > 1 min (60 seconds) to complete and I had no configuration in place. The way beanstalk-app was handling that job was disappointing. That job never finishes within a minute and another job (duplicate) gets triggered by the app and this goes on till it reaches the max retry count.
