When scout is run from the command-line, it will use the multi-threaded Werkzeug WSGI server. While this server is perfect for development and small installations, you may want to use a high-performance WSGI server to deploy Scout.
Scout provides a WSGI app, so you can use any WSGI server for deployment. Popular choices are:
The Flask documentation also provides a list of popular WSGI servers and how to integrate them with Flask apps. Since Scout is a Flask application, all of these examples should work with minimal modification:
Here is an example wrapper script for running Scout using the Gevent WSGI server:
from gevent import monkey monkey.patch_all() from gevent.pywsgi import WSGIServer from scout.server import parse_options # Parse command-line options and return a Flask app. app = parse_options() # Run the WSGI server on localhost:8000. WSGIServer(('127.0.0.1', 8000), app).serve_forever()
You could then run the wrapper script using a tool like supervisord or another process manager.
Here is an example wrapper script for running Scout using Gunicorn.
# Wrapper script to initialize database. from scout.server import parse_options app = parse_options()
Here is how to run gunicorn using the above wrapper script:
$ gunicorn --workers=4 --bind=127.0.0.1:8000 --worker-class=gevent wrapper:app
Here is an example wrapper script for uWSGI.
# Wrapper script to initialize database. from scout import parse_options app = parse_options()
Here is how you might run using the above wrapper script:
$ uwsgi --http :8000 --wsgi-file wrapper.py --master --processes 4 --threads 2
It is common to run uWSGI behind Nginx. For more information check out the uWSGI docs.
