Help:Job queue watchlist
The job queue watchlist was primarily introduced1 for administrators and data curators to have a quick overview of which jobs are currently awaiting execution and may therefore cause stale data for other users.
To enable this feature, configuration parameter
$smwgJobQueueWatchlist is required to contain a list of jobs to be watched after which each user is able to activate it by setting the relevant "Show the job queue watchlist in my personal bar" in the personal preferences.
This feature relies on MediaWiki's JobQueueGroup.php to return countable size information which implies that it depends on the type of job queue (SQL, redis, kafka etc.) and the specific implementation to fetch that information.
