Circus is a process & socket manager. It can be used to monitor and control processes and sockets.
At Novapost, we usually launch processes on different (virtual) machines, so we wanted Circus to manage processes launched on different servers.
Today we are using circus in production and one nice feature is to be able to monitor all processes and sockets dispatched around our servers from one interface.
Mozilla is coming
It appears that after one year of development, Mozilla is now looking forward to use Circus internally to manage their service infrastructure.
As a matter of fact we, at Novapost, are also planning to replace our supervisord based infrastructure with circus.
