Clusterize - helper for core cluster module

Clusterize is a small helper module which wraps the cluster module offered by Node 0.6.x.

Install

$ npm install clusterize

Usage

// server.js

var clusterize = require('clusterize'),
    http = require('http');

var server = http.createServer(function (req, res) {
    res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
    res.end('Hello Clusterize!');
});

clusterize(server, 5100, {numWorkers: 4});

You can then start the server normally

$ node server.js

API

clusterize(httpServer, port, [options]);

options:

  • numWorkers : number of workers to fork, defaults to the number of available cores

Using with Express

To use Clusterize with your Express application, simply export your app object and pass it to Clusterize

// app.js
var app = express.createServer();
app.configure(function() {
    // ...
});

module.exports = app;

// server.js

var clusterize = require('clusterize'),    
    app = require('./app');

clusterize(app, 3000, {numWorkers: 2});

You can then start your app this way

$ node server.js

TODO

This is pretty much a work in progress:

* Tests
* Starting, stopping, restarting the cluster from command line
* Sending messages to peers
* Generate PID files for master and workers
