    Process control in Akeneo

    Akeneo is Product information management system which is a very effective tool to manage Multilingual, multi-currency and large no. of products in the single or multi-channel environment.

    Import and export in Akeneo are done via Jobs. These jobs run in the background and perform import/export/calculation.  Process control manages background process for these jobs.
    Without process control system or any other alternative, jobs will always show Status Starting … and they will never start.

    Process control system like supervisor is the solution for this.

    Process control with supervisor

    Supervisor is most commonly used and recommended process control for Akeneo.

    how to setup?

    1. Install supervisor by running the commands

    2. setup supervisor configuration by editing file /etc/supervisor/conf.d/conf.conf by running the command

    then Insert following data in the file and save


    1. you must create  stderr_logfile (akeneo_daemon.err.log) and stdout_logfile (akeneo_daemon.out.log) at mentioned path.
    2. modify my_user with username of user that runs php fpm

    Now run commands

    After that jobs will get the start.

    Process Control with Monit

    Monit is another process control system. Monit is the possible replacement of supervisor. It is a common choice with docker. It has some interesting features like manage boot order, dependencies, max retry count, timeout etc other than obvious process monitoring.

    how to setup? (for: ubuntu, debian, mint)

    1. install monit by running the command
    2. Setup monit configurations by editing file  /etc/monit/monitrc by running the command

      set up the access server, username, password etc
    3. add akeneo daemon in config by editing file /etc/monit/conf.d/akeneo_queue_daemon
    4. reload monit service and start akeneo queue daemon


    The user may also use other process controls system like systemd.
    But above-listed process control systems are popular ones and supervisor is generally used in Akeneo.
