harakiri
A feature of uWSGI that aborts workers that are serving requests for an excessively long time. Configured using the harakiri family of options. Every request that will take longer than the seconds specified in the harakiri timeout will be dropped and the corresponding worker recycled.
master
uWSGI’s built-in prefork+threading multi-worker management mode, activated by flicking the master switch on. For all practical serving deployments it is generally a good idea to use master mode.
