Hmm, reading that I am growing more suspicious. My ram-related woes  
appeared when Rails 1.2 hit the stage. But I also saw a hefty  
increase in traffic so was quick to blame it on that.

>> Hey Everyone,
>> Topfunky (Geoffry) has created a great PeepCode screencast on using
>> httperf to performance measure your web applications:
>> http://nubyonrails.topfunky.com/articles/2007/03/05/peepcode-page- 
>> caching-and-httperf
>> http://peepcode.com/products/benchmarking-with-httperf
>> Topfunky put a ton of work into this and really got it right.  The
>> attention to detail is very good and he researched the subject
>> thoroughly.  I also spent time reviewing it so that he'd get the
>> statistics right, but he did a lot more than I expected.
>> The main thing that you'll get from his screencast is the actual
>> *process* of doing an analysis and then determining if there's
>> differences.  He shows graphs, takes notes, covers basic statistics,
>> and shows you how to figure out how fast your Mongrel setup can go.
>> It's much better watching someone else do it than reading a
>> description.
>> Everyone who constantly asks about how to performance measure their
>> web
>> apps should grab it and go through it.
>> Why am I pimping it so hard?  First, he's giving me a cut of the  
>> dough
>> and a brotha's gotta eat.  :-)  Second, it is probably the first
>> description of performance measurement and analysis I've seen that
>> actually gets it right.
>> Thanks for your time, and enjoy the day.
