What is Hot Upgrade?

What is hot upgrade? Students who know nginx know that nginx supports hot upgrade. It can use the old process to serve the previous link and the new process to serve the new link, that is, to complete the system upgrade and operating parameter modification without stopping the service. Then hot upgrade and hot compilation are different concepts. Hot compilation is to recompile by monitoring file changes, and then restart the process, For example bee run is such a tool

Is hot upgrade necessary?

Many people think that it is necessary for HTTP applications to support hot upgrades? Then I can say very responsibly that it is very necessary. Uninterrupted service is always the goal we pursue. Although many people say that the server may be broken, etc., this belongs to the high-availability design category. Don’t confuse it. This is Predictable problems, so we need to avoid user unavailability caused by such an upgrade. Are you still troubled by the early morning upgrade for the previous upgrade? So hurry up and embrace the hot upgrade now.

grace module
