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
Circus is an Open Source project started by Tarek Ziadé and Alexis
Metaireau from the Mozilla Services team.
It appears that after one year of development, Mozilla is now looking
forward to use Circus internally to manage their service
As a matter of fact we, at Novapost, are also planning to replace our
supervisord based infrastructure with circus.
