use Mojo::Server::Hypnotoad; my $hypnotoad = Mojo::Server::Hypnotoad->new; $hypnotoad->run('/home/sri/myapp.pl');
To start applications with it you can use the hypnotoad script, which listens on port 8080, automatically daemonizes the server process and defaults to "production" mode for Mojolicious and Mojolicious::Lite applications.
$ hypnotoad ./myapp.pl
You can run the same command again for automatic hot deployment.
$ hypnotoad ./myapp.pl Starting hot deployment for Hypnotoad server 31841.
This second invocation will load the application again, detect the process id file with it, and send a ``USR2'' signal to the already running server.
For better scalability (epoll, kqueue) and to provide non-blocking name resolution, SOCKS5 as well as TLS support, the optional modules EV (4.0+), Net::DNS::Native (0.15+), IO::Socket::Socks (0.64+) and IO::Socket::SSL (2.009+) will be used automatically if possible. Individual features can also be disabled with the "MOJO_NO_NNR", "MOJO_NO_SOCKS" and "MOJO_NO_TLS" environment variables.
Manager (old) |- Worker  |- Worker  |- Worker  |- Worker  +- Manager (new) |- Worker  |- Worker  |- Worker  +- Worker 
accepts => 100
Maximum number of connections a worker is allowed to accept, before stopping gracefully and then getting replaced with a newly started worker, defaults to the value of ``accepts'' in Mojo::Server::Prefork. Setting the value to 0 will allow workers to accept new connections indefinitely. Note that up to half of this value can be subtracted randomly to improve load balancing, and to make sure that not all workers restart at the same time.
backlog => 128
clients => 100
Maximum number of accepted connections each worker process is allowed to handle concurrently, before stopping to accept new incoming connections, defaults to the value of ``max_connections'' in Mojo::IOLoop. Note that high concurrency works best with applications that perform mostly non-blocking operations, to optimize for blocking operations you can decrease this value and increase ``workers'' instead for better performance.
graceful_timeout => 15
Maximum amount of time in seconds stopping a worker gracefully may take before being forced, defaults to the value of ``graceful_timeout'' in Mojo::Server::Prefork. Note that this value should usually be a little larger than the maximum amount of time you expect any one request to take.
heartbeat_interval => 3
heartbeat_timeout => 2
Maximum amount of time in seconds before a worker without a heartbeat will be stopped gracefully, defaults to the value of ``heartbeat_timeout'' in Mojo::Server::Prefork. Note that this value should usually be a little larger than the maximum amount of time you expect any one operation to block the event loop.
inactivity_timeout => 10
Maximum amount of time in seconds a connection can be inactive before getting closed, defaults to the value of ``inactivity_timeout'' in Mojo::Server::Daemon. Setting the value to 0 will allow connections to be inactive indefinitely.
listen => ['http://*:80']
Array reference with one or more locations to listen on, defaults to "http://*:8080". See also ``listen'' in Mojo::Server::Daemon for more examples.
pid_file => '/var/run/hypnotoad.pid'
proxy => 1
requests => 50
spare => 4
Temporarily spawn up to this number of additional workers if there is a need, defaults to the value of ``spare'' in Mojo::Server::Prefork. This allows for new workers to be started while old ones are still shutting down gracefully, drastically reducing the performance cost of worker restarts.
upgrade_timeout => 45
workers => 10
Number of worker processes, defaults to the value of ``workers'' in Mojo::Server::Prefork. A good rule of thumb is two worker processes per CPU core for applications that perform mostly non-blocking operations, blocking operations often require more and benefit from decreasing concurrency with ``clients'' (often as low as 1). Note that during zero downtime software upgrades there will be twice as many workers active for a short amount of time.
