How to make my RESTApps work faster

Hello All, I am working with rails in Windows xp platform since last 2 month or so.I have made some basic and simple rails CRUD app. But whenever I tried to put some authentication on top of the apps,the app went a lot slower.Specially when accessed from remote client machines.

- RUBYGEMS VERSION: 1.8.10   - RUBY VERSION: 1.8.7 (2011-06-30 patchlevel 352) [i386-mingw32]   - INSTALLATION DIRECTORY: C:/Ruby187/lib/ruby/gems/1.8   - RUBY EXECUTABLE: C:/Ruby187/bin/ruby.exe   - EXECUTABLE DIRECTORY: C:/Ruby187/bin   - RUBYGEMS PLATFORMS:     - ruby     - x86-mingw32    -RAILS 3.0.10

I am using AptanaStudio3 as IDE and I have used gem 'devise 1.1.rc0' for authentication. Can anyone tell me how can I make my RESTful apps work a li'l faster with this configuration or any other that might help?

Are you running in development or production mode? Development is slow as it reloads all the classes at each request.

Hello Colin, I've tried production mode also..But that doesn't come with a lot of improvement. And I am using webbrick server.

There is the question of what you mean by slow of course. Any Ajax call must do a round trip to the server.

Start by looking in the log though to see if any clues there.

I have not done it myself but there is a Rails Guide on Performance Testing which purports to provide methods of profiling your app to see where the bottlenecks are. Others who have experience of this may be able to offer suggestions. Also googling for ruby rails profile provides a number of useful looking hits (include ruby in the search or you find all about the profile of rail lines).

My team also faced the slowness of app when upgraded to Rails 3.1 from Rails 2.3.8, using Ruby 1.8.7.

We upgraded to Ruby version to 1.9 to overcome the slowness. The app runs better in Ruby 1.9.2 with Rails 3.

Thanks Colin,I am trying to resolve this. Please share if you find anything useful there.

Thanks Neethu,we will surely try that also.

I was not suggesting that *I* do the research, just pointing out that where you might start yourself.

I didn't assume that you would do the research for me! Thanks for guiding the direction. I only asked for sharing any clue in case you find something ... Thanks again

I agree with Neethu. Upgrade your Ruby version before you try anything else.

Thanks, B.

why are you running WEBrick as your production webserver? it's not designed for that.

get an apache or Nginx install post haste!

I agree would get Nginx running passenger. You also I believe did not mention the amount of memory you have on your server etc.
