configure question and passenger

Greetings all.
I have seen a couple of diagrams on the net that look like a computer
set up as an nginx server and more than one mongrel server running at
once.
What is the advantage of having more than one mongrel server running?
Is there a good how-to that explains it very well.

thanks

So that you can process more requests in parallel.

Fred,

Great, thanks for the reply. Do you know what book or site may have a
good tutorial about how to pull this off? Most of the docs and
tutorials i find just show setting up and nginx server with passenger.
Thanks again

Passenger (with either Nginx or Apache) is usually the simplest and best
way to deploy Rails applications. What's your use case like that you
need something different?

Thanks again

Best,

Right now i am using Nginx with Passenger to deploy. Does this only
allow for one instance of Rails to run in each virtual host?
I read in the Agile book that Rails is single thread and can only
process one request at a time. I guess i need a more parallel
approach.
Also, and i did not think of this before, but is passenger actually
running the rails app like webrick or mongrel ?

Thanks for all of your help.

More than one instance.

Passenger provides that parallelism automatically. Read about it before
assuming it won't work.

Essentially.

Thanks for all of your help.
