Question

Flask application with gunicorn in the app platform does not work

I have a flask application that I am trying to run in the app of platforms with a gunicorn.

wsgi.py

from app import create_app

app = create_app()


if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.run()

gconfig.py

from multiprocessing import cpu_count

bind = '0.0.0.0:8080'

workers = (2 * cpu_count()) + 1
worker_class = 'gevent'
worker_connections = 1000

timeout = 60

Run Command

gunicorn --worker-tmp-dir /dev/shm -c gconfig.py wsgi:app

After the build in the logs:

When I go to the url, then in the browser I just have the text:

That configuration looks reasonable. Without seeing the application, this advice is just speculation. The App Platform does health checks against the http port specified for the application at deployment. If the app is getting past those, and then you’re seeing “no healthy upstreams” the application may be crashing after boot. This could be caused by exceeding memory limits for the application, by an internal error in the application, or more rarely by an error in our system. I’d recommend trying a larger instance size, and if you’re still seeing trouble contact support. Our support team (with your permission) can examine your running application to see if there’s anything we can see from our end.
