Monitor Procfiles with God.
Install the gem on the machine running god - there is no need to include it as a dependency in your project.
$ gem install foreman_god
To run the sample:
god -D -c sample.god
Or with your own Procfile, add the following to your god configuration file:
require 'foreman_god' ForemanGod.watch File.dirname(__FILE__) # Or an absolute path to the folder containing the Procfile
To set environment variables, add an .env file in next to the Procfile.
To specify foreman options, add a .foreman file next to the Procfile.
See samples/configuration for a complete example.
If present, the
tmp/restart.txt file in your project is watched for changes. If this file is modified, for example
touch tmp/restart.txt, all workers are restarted.
Reloading the Procfile
When the Procfile (or .env or .foreman files) changed, use
god load <god config> stop to reload the config files.
stop action tells god to stop any processes that were removed from the Procfile (available since god 0.12.0,
but not documented at the time of writing).
To run god itself with RVM, use a wrapper script as explained at https://rvm.io/integration/god/.
Using RVM is tricky when running God as root. Often you would want to run the commands in a different environment from god (different user, different Ruby, different gems, etc).
The simplest way to tell ForemanGod to run your processes with RVM, is to specify
rvm: default in your .foreman config
file. This tells ForemanGod to use the "default" Ruby version to run the script. Alternatively you can specify a
specific ruby version or gemset, for example
rvm: ruby-1.9.3-p194 or
Technically this loads the environment for the ruby/gemset version, which is found in either
/usr/local/rvm/<version>. This is similar to the approach for Cron scripts.
On each deployment, God needs to reload the configuration. Restarting of the processes happen with the
solution explained earlier, which you already do if you're using Passenger.
Use a task like the following to reload the configuration (see Reloading the Procfile above):
namespace :god do task :reload do # Replace the god command and config file here with the ones used on your server run("god load /etc/god/master.god stop") end end before "deploy:restart", "god:reload"
