[Mongrel] Memory leaks in my site

I agree - java server processes can get HUGE. I work with weblogic clusters
and we constantly have to change the thread pools and stack size on the
threads because they can get wayyy out of hand. 


Has anyone successfully created mongrel clusters spanning two or more
physical servers? Just curious.

 C'mon, Java processes typically hit the 600M or even

Java runtime is a bloat. But its processes are natively multi-threaded and
can serve multiple apps from the same server. So, one Java process should
probably be compared with about 5-10 Rails processes in terms of RAM
footprint. It's still a bloat. 


Even better, why are people complaining about the memory footprint of
RAILS on the MONGREL mailing list? 

Not guilty. In this thread, I am complaining about Mongrel's memory
footprint, not "Hello, World"'s. :)
Besides, I'm not even complaining, just trying to understand the ins and
outs of this stack, and what can or cannot be squeezed out of it. 

By the way, I hope load balancing solutions are not off-topic? :)
