PyCon 2008: Supervisor as a Platform

  • Posted by Mike Naberezny in Python

    We presented Supervisor this week at PyCon 2008. We enjoyed meeting many new users and hearing how Supervisor has helped you. Thanks for your support.

    If you didn’t make it to PyCon, here’s an overview of our talk:

    Supervisor is a tool for managing UNIX processes. Supervisor starts arbitrary processes at its own startup and allows otherwise unprivileged users to start, stop and restart its subprocesses and view its subprocess’ logs using a command line or web interface. Other programs exist which do this, but what sets Supervisor apart is that it is written in Python and built with extension points that can be leveraged by Python developers. In this talk, we’ll look at Supervisor as a platform, and how Python programs written to run under Supervisor can use its unique capabilities.
