    strong-pm - Process Manager

    Gitter

    StrongLoop PM is a production process manager for Node.js applications with built-in load balancing, monitoring, multi-host deployment, and a graphical console.

    For more details, see http://strong-pm.io

    Installation

    Requirements: git needs to be installed

    Install the client-side CLI and GUI (slc arc):

    npm install -g strongloop
    slc -h
    

    Run app

    slc start app.js
    

    Or to deploy and manage remotely, install the manager on a production server using npm:

    npm install -g strong-pm && sl-pm-install
    

    Or using docker:

    curl -sSL http://strong-pm.io/docker.sh | sudo /bin/sh
    

    Quick Start

    Under production, you will install the process manager as a system service, see http://strong-pm.io/prod, but if you are just trying the manager out locally, you can run an app directly from the command line.

    Get a sample app (or use your own app):

    git clone git@github.com:strongloop/express-example-app.git
    cd express-example-app
    npm install
    

    Start the app under the process manager:

    slc start
    

    Interact with the app using the StrongLoop GUI:

    slc arc
    

    See http://strong-pm.io for more information.

    • Automatic restart on failure
    • Log aggregation and management
    • Change cluster size, view clustering info remotely
    • Set up secure access via SSH / HTTPS
    • Manage Nginx load-balancer for multi-host deployments

    Metrics

    • View performance metrics such as event loop times, CPU and memory consumption
    • Publish metrics to StatsD-compatible servers, and view in 3rd-party consoles such as:
      • DataDog
      • Graphite
      • Splunk
      • Even syslog and raw log files
      • See Integrating with third-party consoles for details.
