Python agent and Paste

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

Admin script integration method

The recommended admin script integration method will work if the paste.httpserver.serve() API function is used directly. For more on the admin script process, see the general installation procedures.

Using PasteDeploy

If rather than manually incorporating the call to startup the Paste HTTP server in your application code, you are using PasteDeploy with a configuration similar to:

[server:main]
use = egg:Paste#http
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
