Increase the number of Unicorn threads

By default, your instance of Dradis ships with two unicorn threads. Increasing the number of unicorn threads on your instance gives you more "web server" threads to serve more web requests per second. This can be especially helpful if you have a large team you want multiple workers available to serve incoming requests.

To increase the number of unicorn threads:

  1. Open file /opt/dradispro/dradispro/current/script/
  2. Append the following line at the bottom of the file:
    export UNICORN_WORKERS=4
  3. Restart the unicorn processes by running the following in the console as dradispro:
    $ god restart dradispro-unicorn

Reminder: local changes will be overwritten the next time you upgrade. If you make any local changes, make sure to re-apply them every time you upgrade Dradis.
