Starlet(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	    Starlet(3)

NAME
       Starlet - a simple, high-performance PSGI/Plack HTTP server

SYNOPSIS
	 % start_server	--port=80 -- plackup -s	Starlet	[options] your-app.psgi

	 or if you do not need hot deploy,

	 % plackup -s Starlet --port=80	[options] your-app.psgi

DESCRIPTION
       Starlet is a standalone HTTP/1.1	web server, formerly known as
       Plack::Server::Standalone::Prefork and
       Plack::Server::Standalone::Prefork::Server::Starter.

       The server supports following features, and is suitable for running
       HTTP application	servers	behind a reverse proxy.

       - prefork and graceful shutdown using Parallel::Prefork

       - hot deploy using Server::Starter

       - fast HTTP processing using HTTP::Parser::XS (optional)

COMMAND	LINE OPTIONS
       In addition to the options supported by plackup,	Starlet	accepts
       following options(s).

   --max-workers=#
       number of worker	processes (default: 10)

   --timeout=#
       seconds until timeout (default: 300)

   --keepalive-timeout=#
       timeout for persistent connections (default: 2)

   --max-keepalive-reqs=#
       max. number of requests allowed per single persistent connection.  If
       set to one, persistent connections are disabled (default: 1)

   --max-reqs-per-child=#
       max. number of requests to be handled before a worker process exits
       (default: 100)

   --min-reqs-per-child=#
       if set, randomizes the number of	requests handled by a single worker
       process between the value and that supplied by "--max-reqs-per-chlid"
       (default: none)

   --spawn-interval=#
       if set, worker processes	will not be spawned more than once than	every
       given seconds.  Also, when SIGHUP is being received, no more than one
       worker processes	will be	collected every	given seconds.	This feature
       is useful for doing a "slow-restart".  See
       http://blog.kazuhooku.com/2011/04/web-serverstarter-parallelprefork.html
       for more	information. (dedault: none)

NOTES
       Starlet is designed and implemented to be simple, secure	and fast,
       especially for running as a HTTP	application server running behind a
       reverse proxy.  It only depends on a minimal number of well-designed
       (and well-focused) modules.

       On the other hand if you	are looking for	a standalone preforking	HTTP
       server that receives HTTP requests directly from	the Internet, then you
       should look at Starman.
