Description : High-performance preforking PSGI/Plack web server
Starman is a PSGI perl web server that has unique features such as:
* High Performance - Uses the fast XS/C HTTP header parser
* Preforking - Spawns workers preforked like most high performance UNIX
servers do. Starman also reaps dead children and automatically restarts
the worker pool.
* Signals - Supports HUP for graceful restarts, and TTIN/TTOU to
dynamically increase or decrease the number of worker processes.
* Superdaemon aware - Supports Server::Starter for hot deploy and
* Multiple interfaces and UNIX Domain Socket support - Able to listen
on multiple intefaces including UNIX sockets.
* Small memory footprint - Preloading the applications with --preload-app
command line option enables copy-on-write friendly memory management.
Also, the minimum memory usage Starman requires for the master process
is 7MB and children (workers) is less than 3.0MB.
* PSGI compatible - Can run any PSGI applications and frameworks
* HTTP/1.1 support - Supports chunked requests and responses, keep-alive
and pipeline requests.
