Anybody trying God (a monit like Ruby process monitor)

Hello,

I found God (http://god.rubyforge.org/) it looks cool, I am

considering to give it a try. Anybody using it?

Hi Aníbal,
I have been using God for about a month without problems. I use a
modified version of the config from the Website, and it works great,
no complaints :slight_smile:

I heard about this! But haven’t looked into it yet. Is this a
replacement for Monit or something to use along with it?

It is supposed to be a replacement, from what I have been told.

Has anyone used this with Parrot?

And I have seen indications that it can relate to Rails, but I am not
sure how. Can someone shed some light on how this can be used with
Rails?

What I am hoping for is that I can use Ruby, Parrot, God, and Rails to
provide a highly coordinated management stack on a high end router/
security device.

Thanks in advance for any help.

What is Parrot ?

Yes it is. I’ve recently looked into it for one of our projects. It
certainly does the job well for what it’s designed for: monitoring
processes and restarting them as necessary.

I do found the internals (the transition) stuff to be a bit fickle, but
maybe it’s just getting used to (heck, Capistrano takes getting used to
in the beginning :-). I tried setting up a scheme for issuing STOP and
CONT signals to processes depending on the load, but couldn’t get it to
work.

In summary, I think it’s great for your average Rails application and
surrounding server daemons, but it’s not up to par with monit for
anything more advanced. And in most cases that will do just fine. I’m
liking it.

Thank you very much for the explanation… So Monit is more powerful and
God is easier to understand / set up and it works good enough… Thanx
again!
