Flynn’s dashboard now has a resource provisioner, which allows users to add database resources to a running app, or to provision a standalone database which can be used by both Flynn apps and external apps.
We’ve also shipped a number of stability improvements.
Flynn now supports process prioritization using the flynn limit command. The priority setting is relative, e.g. when a system is under load, a process with priority 2000 will get double the CPU time of a process with priority 1000. The default priority is 1000.
# Give the web process double the default priority of 1000
flynn limit set web cpu=2000
# Give the worker process a lower priority
flynn limit set worker cpu=500
Flynn now has a MySQL database appliance available in beta, to go along with
Postgres and Redis. Flynn’s MySQL appliance features the same highly-available
configuration as our Postgres appliance, and supports app and cluster backups.
Run flynn resource add mysql to provision a new MySQL database for your
A number of bugfixes also landed, as we focus on stability and performance.
