Preset: Nice

This preset offers nice configuration defaults.

class uwsgiconf.presets.nice.Section(name=None, touch_reload=None, workers=None, threads=None, mules=None, owner=None, log_into=None, log_dedicated=None, process_prefix=None, ignore_write_errors=None, **kwargs)

Basic nice configuration.

  • name (str|unicode) – Section name.
  • touch_reload (str|list) – Reload uWSGI if the specified file or directory is modified/touched.
  • workers (int) – Spawn the specified number of workers (processes). Default: workers number equals to CPU count.
  • threads (int|bool) – Number of threads per worker or True to enable user-made threads support.
  • mules (int) – Number of mules to spawn.
  • owner (str|unicode) – Set process owner user and group.
  • log_into (str|unicode) – Filepath or UDP address to send logs into.
  • log_dedicated (bool) – If True all logging will be handled with a separate thread in master process.
  • process_prefix (str|unicode) – Add prefix to process names.
  • ignore_write_errors (bool) –

    If True no annoying SIGPIPE/write/writev errors will be logged, and no related exceptions will be raised.


    Usually such errors could be seen on client connection cancelling and are safe to ignore.

  • kwargs

Returns default log message format.


Some params may be missing.

configure_certbot_https(domain, webroot, address=None, allow_shared_sockets=None)
