/dev/shm support

The OpenShift forums have been retired.
You can still read and search them, but for help, please post a question on Stack Overflow.

I'm experimenting with a diy app with the goal of deploying a django application with gunicorn, supervisor and celery support. When running celeryd on openshift, the following error "[Errno 38] Function not implemented - multiprocessing " is thrown. Upon investigation i found an issue related to the lack of OS shm support: https://github.com/ask/celery/issues/185 . Would it be something that could be added to the openshift architecture?

I get the same error when trying to create a multiprocessing.Pool(). Would really appreciate a fix to this issue, thanks.

Hi;

Thank you for your feedback.

Thanks;

Just wanted to provide a quick update. Bug 814991 has been resolved. This means /dev/shm support (capped at 5MB) is available in the latest development version of OpenShift, and the feature should make its way to production with the next release in mid-November.
