Bloğumuzda ghost kullanalım deyince IIS (Internet Information Services) üzerinde nasıl nodejs 'i çalıştırırım şeklinde arayışlara girdim.

Muhtemelen "abi neden direk çalıştırmadın ki?" şeklinde sorular saklamışsınızdır kendinize... Bu sorulara tek tek cevap vermeye gerek yok... Ne olursa olsun bir tatminsizliğimiz olacak.

Ben verilmiş olanları paylaşayım. Benim sebeplerim de aynı... Scott abim çok güzel anlatmış.

Hem kurulumu anlatıyor hem de sebeplerini... Sebepleri de şu şekilde;

  • Process management:
    The iisnode module takes care of lifetime management of node.exe processes making it simple to improve overall reliability. You don’t have to implement infrastructure to start, stop, and monitor the processes.

  • Scalability on multi-core servers: Since node.exe is a single threaded process, it only scales to one CPU core. The iisnode module allows creation of multiple node.exe processes per application and load balances the HTTP traffic between them, therefore enabling full utilization of a server’s CPU capacity without requiring additional infrastructure code from an application developer.

  • Auto-update: The iisnode module ensures that whenever the node.js application is updated (i.e. the script file has changed), the node.exe processes are recycled. Ongoing requests are allowed to gracefully finish execution using the old version of the application, while all new requests are dispatched to the new version of the app.

  • Access to logs over HTTP: The iisnode module provides access the output of the node.exe process (e.g. generated by console.log calls) via HTTP. This facility is key in helping you debug node.js applications deployed to remote servers.

  • Side by side with other content types: The iisnode module integrates with IIS in a way that allows a single web site to contain a variety of content types. For example, a single site can contain a node.js application, static HTML and JavaScript files, PHP applications, and ASP.NET applications. This enables choosing the best tools for the job at hand as well progressive migration of existing applications.

  • Minimal changes to node.js application code: The iisnode module enables hosting of existing HTTP node.js applications with very minimal changes. Typically all that is required is to change the listed address of the HTTP server to one provided by the iisnode module via the process.env.PORT environment variable.
    Integrated management experience. The issnode module is fully integrated with IIS configuration system and uses the same tools and mechanism as other IIS components for configuration and maintenance.
    In addition to benefits specific to the iisnode module, hosting node.js applications in IIS allows the developer to benefit from a range of IIS features, among them:

  • port sharing (hosting multiple HTTP applications over port 80)
  • security (HTTPS, authentication and authorization)
  • URL rewriting
  • compression
  • caching
  • logging
