Automatically shut down servers when inactive
Automatically quit node.js servers when inactive.
Detects when a server has been inactive for a period of time and shuts it down.
Designed to be used in combination with something like node-systemd: https://github.com/rubenv/node-systemd
More info on why you'd want to use this module: http://savanne.be/articles/deploying-node-js-with-systemd/
You can install the latest version via npm:
$ npm install autoquit
Require the autoquit module. It will monkey-patch the support for auto-quitting into net.Server.
Create an app as usual and call the
autoQuit method. Do this before calling
listen to avoid inconsistencies in the connection counting.
var http = require'http';var server = httpcreateServerreswriteHead200 'Content-Type': 'text/plain';resend'Hello World\n';;serverautoQuit;serverlisten1337;
Do a request to your service:
# curl -iHTTP/1.1 200 OKContent-Type: text/plainConnection: keep-aliveTransfer-Encoding: chunkedHello World
After 10 minutes of inactivity (the default), it will close the server.
You can pass options as an object to the
serverautoQuit timeOut: 900 ;
timeOut: number of seconds of inactivity before triggering the shutdown method.
exitFn: A function that will be invoked when shutting down. If this is not supplied, the default action is to invoke
