Subject [users@httpd] Performance problem with Apache-FCGI-Rails
Date Tue, 30 May 2006 13:05:18 GMT
We have our Rail 1.0 application running on Apache 1.3 with FastCGI. The httpd.
conf has :
<IfModule mod_fastcgi.c>
  FastCgiIpcDir /tmp/fcgi_ipc
  FastCgiServer /root/zs/public/dispatch.fcgi -processes 2
  FastCgiConfig -autoUpdate -initial-env RAILS_ENV=production -idle-timeout 120 

-maxClassProcesses 2 -killInterval 300


The dispatch.fcgi is the default provided in the Rails app:
#! /usr/local/bin/ruby

require File.dirname(__FILE__) + "/../config/environment"
require 'fcgi_handler'


When one person is remotely accessing the application, the speed is very good. 
When there are two or more people accessing, the app becomes very slow. It seems 
that the dispatch.fcgi has to occasionally restart. However, the restart takes 
about 20 seconds, which makes the app occassionally slow. 
Has anyone faced a similar problem? What is the solution?
