> First off, ive just switched to using mongrel_cluster and pound - its
> working a treat! Its far far faster than fast-cgi: operations that took a
> few seconds on fcgi now are almost instant with mongrel. Excellent!
> However, I've been trying to decide how best to utilise my equipment most
> effectively. I have a dual pro 3Ghz Xenon with 2GB RAM, and the server will
> be running a few different applications - some rails, some php. Seeing as I
> was using lighty before I switched im keeping my PHP on lighty and proxying
> through pound but my rails apps are now on mongrel, but how many instances
> would deliver the best performance on what im running? I wasn't sure if
> mongrel got busy would it hog a lot of ram or something like that.
> What would people suggest from there own experiences?
