Python agent and CherryPy web framework

This documentation contains requirements and tips for integrating the New Relic Python agent with an app that uses the CherryPy WSGI server. For general install instructions, go to Install New Relic for Python.

Admin script integration method

You can use the recommended admin script integration method if the CherryPyWSGIServer API function is used directly. The recommended admin script method is described in the general installation instructions.

Using PasteDeploy

If rather than manually integrating the call to startup the CherryPy WSGI server in your application code, you are using PasteDeploy with a configuration similar to:

[server:main]
use = egg:PasteScript#cherrypy
host = 127.0.0.1
port = 8080

all you instead need to do to start up your WSGI application is wrap the running of the paster command:

NEW_RELIC_CONFIG_FILE=newrelic.ini newrelic-admin run-program paster serve production.ini
