I have an ROR application thats been running on the production server
for almost a couple of months now. Everything seemed fine but the past
few days have caused worry. The whole server slows down drastically
and comes to a halt suddenly and it requires a reboot for the apps i
have on the server to start being responsive again.
I installed binarylogic's memory logic http://github.com/binarylogic/memorylogic/tree/master
which shows me memory usage on every line of my log along with the
PID. I can see that the memory usage keeps going higher with every
request on my local dev machine.
Does that mean ive got a memory leak? How do i diagnose this? I have
no experience with this and im not even sure what a bad number is when
i see one in terms of memory usage.
For information's sake, when i start the app up locally, mem starts at
around 46700 and keeps going up by about 400 with every request on
average. How can i interpret this data? Anyone used memory logic
