Excessive use of CPU

Hello guys and girls, I have a problem with a method (new), it is
using 100% of CPU for 15/20 seconds. Follow the method below:


## kits_controller.rb
def new
  @page_title = 'Add a Kit'
  @kit = Kit.new

  @num_itens = 16
  @kit_inclusions = Array.new
  @num_itens.times { @kit_inclusions.push(KitInclusion.new) }

    render :action => 'form'

def new_do
  kit = Kit.new(params[:form])

  if kit.save
    params[:kit_inclusions].each do |ki|
      next if ki[:product_id].empty?

      kit_inclusion = KitInclusion.new(ki)
      kit_inclusion.kit_id = kit.id

    flash[:notice] = 'Kit added!'
    redirect_to :action => 'index'
    flash[:notice] = kit.errors.full_messages.map {|fm| "<li>#{fm}</


    redirect_to :action => 'new'

## form.hmtl.erb
<% form_for :form, @kit, :url => { :action => action_do } do |f| -%>
    <% @num_itens.times do |t| -%>
  <% fields_for "kit_inclusions[]", @kit_inclusions[t] do |i| -%>
      <li><label><strong>Product <%= t + 1 %>:</strong></label><%=
i.collection_select "product_id", Product.all(:conditions =>
{:available => true}, :order => "category_id, model
ASC"), :id, :display_for_select, {:include_blank => 'Select...'},
{:onchange => "qntDefault(\'quantity_#{t}\');"} %><%= i.text_field
"quantity", {:onkeydown => "return noLetters(event);", :class =>
'quantity', :id => "quantity_#{t}"} %></li>
        <% end -%>
    <% end -%>
    <%= image_submit_tag 'btn_save.png' %></div>
    <%= f.hidden_field :id %>
<% end -%>

Can you give more information on your environment? It shouldn't be
taking that long...

I'd also advise you to read more documentation; some parts of your
code are working against the Rails default conventions (for instance:
the action that creates records is typically 'create', not 'new_do').
It's a small thing, but it means that you have to do extra typing
(example: the :url option to form_for).

You may also, if you're on 2.3, want to look into the nested model
support stuff, which will handle much of what you're doing here.

Hello Matt, thanks for the atention.

I'm under Ruby 1.8.6 and Rails 2.3.2. The machine is a Macbook Pro
with a Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz and 4GB of RAM. I have declared the nested
conditions in the model as seen bellow.

class Kit < ActiveRecord::Base

  has_many :kit_inclusions
  has_many :products, :through => :kit_inclusions

  accepts_nested_attributes_for :kit_inclusions, :allow_destroy =>

  def before_validation
    self.name = self.name.to_s.strip.downcase.titleize
    self.comments = self.comments.to_s.strip.capitalize

  validates_presence_of :name, :message => 'é requerido'

  def to_s
