Gunicorn stuck on docker when run is executed with flask application

0 votes

I'm running a container app_container built, exposing port 8000 and with its entry point being ENTRYPOINT ["/usr/local/bin/gunicorn", "web_interface:app", "-w 4", "-t 90", "--log-level=info", "-b", "--reload"].

My container stops if I try and run the app locally but  if I run it with docker run --link postgres_db_container --name foo app_container, the gunicorn command runs to the app.

Locally the container stops here:

[2017-06-19 16:01:16 +0000] [1] [INFO] Starting gunicorn 19.7.1
[2017-06-19 16:01:16 +0000] [1] [INFO] Listening at:
[2017-06-19 16:01:16 +0000] [1] [INFO] Using worker: sync
[2017-06-19 16:01:16 +0000] [8] [INFO] Booting worker with pid: 8
[2017-06-19 16:01:16 +0000] [10] [INFO] Booting worker with pid: 10
[2017-06-19 16:01:16 +0000] [11] [INFO] Booting worker with pid: 11
[2017-06-19 16:01:16 +0000] [13] [INFO] Booting worker with pid: 13

If I interrupt the process it shows a test print message

^C[2017-06-19 16:09:27 +0000] [1] [INFO] Handling signal: int
[2017-06-19 16:09:27 +0000] [10] [INFO] Worker exiting (pid: 10)
[2017-06-19 16:09:27 +0000] [11] [INFO] Worker exiting (pid: 11)
[2017-06-19 16:09:27 +0000] [8] [INFO] Worker exiting (pid: 8)

I think Gunicorn is stuck on some process.

Am I doing anything wrong here? There isn't even any error for me to troubleshoot them.

Im facing the exact same issue. Were you able to resolve it?

Did you try the below-given solution?

Yes I did, but same issue. I dont think it is the port mapping issue.

When I run my docker container, its boots up and gets stuck at:

[2020-07-09 11:07:45 +0000] [1] [INFO] Starting gunicorn 19.10.0

[2020-07-09 11:07:45 +0000] [1] [INFO] Listening at: (1)

[2020-07-09 11:07:45 +0000] [1] [INFO] Using worker: sync

[2020-07-09 11:07:45 +0000] [8] [INFO] Booting worker with pid: 8

This is the same even if I increase timeout.
But once I enter Ctrl+C to exit, it prints the output

^C[2020-07-09 11:08:51 +0000] [1] [INFO] Handling signal: int

Port mapping are also correct.
Why is this happening? I even tried with different versions of gunicorn and python. But still the same.My docker cmd:

CMD ["gunicorn","-w","1","--timeout","1200","-b","","api:app"]

Try with detach mode and check with the docker ps command. Is it in a running state or not?

Here's something that you could try:

  • Check your port is mapping to you localhost so that it can access the container

    docker run -p 8000:8000 (rest of the command)
  • Also, change your listening port to "-b" from "-b". this is kinda requirement for docker to map ports. In docker ps you'll see>8000

Now, check your localhost:8000 in your web browser to see if the app is working properly.
