This option can be used to implement custom behavior for handling
worker exits.  For example, let's say you have a specific request
that crashes a worker process, which you expect to be due to a
improperly programmed C extension. By modifying your worker to
save request related data in a temporary file and using this option,
you can get a record of what request is crashing the application,
which will make debugging easier.

This is not a complete patch as it doesn't include tests, but
before writing tests I wanted to see if this is something you'd
consider including in unicorn.

Example:

after_worker_exit do |server, worker, status|
  server.logger.info "worker #{status.success? ? 'exit' : 'crash'}: #{status}"

  file = "request.#{status.pid}.txt"
  if File.exist?(file)
    do_something_with(File.read(file)) unless status.success?
    File.delete(file)
  end
end

What advantage does this have over Ruby's builtin at_exit?

AFAIK, at_exit may be registered inside after_fork hooks to the
same effect.

Thanks.

at_exit is not called if the interpreter crashes:

ruby -e 'at_exit{File.write('a.txt', 'a')}; Process.kill :SEGV, $$' 2>/dev/null
([ -f a.txt ] && echo at_exit called) || echo at_exit not called

Ah, thanks.  I didn't read the code carefully, enough.
The commit message and documentation should reflect that it's
called in the master and not the worker.

Anyways, this is probably OK since I can't think of a less
intrusive or more generic (across all Rack servers) way of doing
it.  So I'm inclined to accept some version of this.

I've been trying to reduce the method entry overhead across
the board.  Since this is a new field, can it be attr_writer
solely for configurator?

I don't think there's reader dependency other than below...

Which can be made to access the ivar directly:

	   @after_worker_exit.call(self, worker, status)

Here's a revised patch that should address the issues you identified:

Subject: [PATCH] Add after_worker_exit configuration option

This option is executed in the master process following all
worker process exits.  It is most useful in the case where
the worker process crashes the ruby interpreter, as the worker
process may not be able to send error notifications
appropriately.

For example, let's say you have a specific request that crashes a
worker process, which you expect to be due to a improperly
programmed C extension. By modifying your worker to save request
related data in a temporary file and using this option, you can get
a record of what request is crashing the application, which will
make debugging easier.

Example:

after_worker_exit do |server, worker, status|
  server.logger.info "worker #{status.success? ? 'exit' : 'crash'}: #{status}"

  file = "request.#{status.pid}.txt"
  if File.exist?(file)
    do_something_with(File.read(file)) unless status.success?
    File.delete(file)
  end
end

Thanks.  Pushed as 2af91a1fef70d6546ee03760011c170a082db667

I needed one change to an integration test to workaround
the lack of reader attribute, but I'd rather pay the cost
in the test than the server, itself:
