  • An Internet of PHP
    9 projects | | 9 Sep 2023
    What I went with was having both a web server (Apache/Nginx) and PHP-FPM in the same container image, held together by Supervisor:

    In my case, the Dockerfile looks a bit like the following:

      # Whatever base web server image you want, Debian/Ubuntu based here
  • Private Python Packages With devpi
    4 projects | | 1 Jul 2023
    As you can see there are several methods of running devpi server including cron, launchd (OSX service), nginx, Windows service, and supervisord. It also has a systemd service file which we can use to manage the service easily as Ubuntu uses it for primary service management. First off though we're going to need a proxy script to ensure that devpi is running in the virtual environment:

    If it's a linux box you can make it a systemctl service, or you could use
  • Have you convinced anyone to use Nix or NixOS? Friends? Coworkers?
    5 projects | /r/NixOS | 16 Apr 2023
    I convinced (previous) $dayjob to use it. It (nix) kind of hung around in the background with the team that used haskell for awhile, but became prime time when we needed to support a range of VMs running within client infrastructure that were in reality just running various python scripts under supervisord ( The range of client machines (redhat, centos, debian, ubuntu all of different releases) with differing versions of python and supervisord were driving our support and devops teams crazy (but in a weird way - they thought they were being productive, and really enjoyed tweaking things to work with additional varieties of os...). Additionally, having to work around some minor pain points of supervisord (adding and removing config files and not interrupting running services) lead to the realisation that there was a perfectly good service manager at the bottom of the modern versions of these systems (systemd) and that nixos was just a nix wrapper around this systemd and it would only restart what actually changed...
  • Design of GNU Parallel

    Here's more information about the configuration file format, in case anyone is curious:

    My problem is that it's not always immediately clear how software that would normally run as a systemd service could be launched in the foreground instead. It usually takes a bit of digging around.

  • How We Built an Application to Test Student Docker Images for Database Systems University Course
    6 projects | | 24 Feb 2023
    This post is structured as follows: The first chapter Requirements and Design, describes the requirements for such an application, defines its processes, breaks it down into logical components, and proposes a data model. The second chapter Implementation, provides an introduction to key implementation issues, such as implementing asynchronous tasks and LDAP authentication. It also showcases the usage of Docker with Python SDK in the project, including network configuration, and describes the deployment configuration using supervisord. The final chapter summarizes the efforts and provides links to the code repositories.

  • MISP at scale on Kubernetes
    10 projects | | 17 Nov 2022
    The project MISP-Docker from Coolacid is providing a containerized version of the MISP solution. This all-in-one solution includes the frontend, background jobs, cronjobs and an HTTP Server (Nginx) all orchestrated by process manager tool called supervisor. External services such as the database and Redis aren’t part of the container but are necessary. We decided that this project is very a good starting point to scale the MISP on Kubernetes.

    So far in this article, you’ve started the queue workers manually. In a production server, that's not an option. Instead, you'll have to use a program called supervisor. It's a popular process control system for UNIX-like operating systems. If you're deploying an application on a Ubuntu server, supervisor will come pre-installed. However, if you're on a platform that doesn't come with the program pre-installed, follow the official installation instructions.

    Not sure if this helps, but on normal Linux systems I usually use supervisor to ensure processes keep running
