Overview of this book

Laravel Octane is a very powerful component in the Laravel ecosystem that can help you achieve remarkable app performance. With Laravel Octane, you will find tools (queues, cache, and tables) that facilitate a new asynchronous approach for improving application performance. This book highlights how Laravel Octane works, what steps to take in designing an application from the start, what tools you have at your disposal, and how to set up production environments. It provides complete coverage of the strategies, tools, and best practices to make your apps scalable and performant. This is especially important as optimization is usually the overlooked part in the application development lifecycle. You will explore the asynchronous approach in Laravel and be able to release high-performing applications that have a positive impact on the end-user experience. By the end of this book, you will find yourself designing, developing, and releasing high-performance applications.

Laravel Octane and RoadRunner advanced configuration

As mentioned in the previous section, we can control some parameters during the launch of Laravel Octane. This is because you want to change some options, such as the number of workers or the port and, like in the next examples, if you want to activate the HTTPS protocol.

Under the hood, Octane collects parameters from the command line and some Octane configuration and starts the RoadRunner process (it starts the rr command).

In the Octane source code, there is a file called StartRoadRunnerCommand.php that implements a Laravel artisan command with the following code:

$server = tap(new Process(array_filter([
    '-c', $this->configPath(),
    '-o', 'version=2.7',
    '-o', 'http.address='.$this->option('host').':
