gunicorn is an alternative that may be simpler to use.

The documentation that likes telling stories. uWSGI has a stupid insane number of features.

uWSGI is best combined with a web-server like Nginx: better at serving static files, the reverse-proxy buffers requests before forwarding to avoid wasting app-workers' time (Slowloris DOS), and possibly better security. Other app-servers may not have the latter issue.

; Increased efficiency for larger number of processes(/threads) (no reason not to).
thunder-lock = True

; (Threads disabled)
processes = 2
harakiri = 30

; uwsgitop <stats-socket>
stats = /run/uwsgi/app/APP_NAME/stats-socket
memory-report = True
; Clear environment on exit
vacuum = True

REPLACE_ME_HOST_NAME otherwise return HTTP 421 Misdirected Request (security)
route-if-not = equal:${HTTP_HOST};REPLACE_ME_HOST_NAME return:421
  • Due to uWSGI's default pre-forking behaviour, you may want lazy-apps or a @postfork fix function when running more than one process.
  • Note on harakiri and "post buffering" - the web server should take entire request body before passing it on, otherwise a slow upload could be killed due to the harakiri timer.
  • When using threads, e.g.threads=2, will automatically set enable-threads = true.


Python-Specific Configuration

uWSGI has an easy interface (uwsgidecorators) to:

  • Background tasks (spooler, mules, cron, timers, and generic execute-task-in-background-thread)
  • Communcation between all processes using signals
  • Locks
  • In-memory cache (with periodic disk sync)

They are shared only within that master uWSGI instance.
