I have ruby 1.8.6, rails 2.1.0 in Apache 2.0.59 / mod_fastcgi 2.4.6 on
The first 2, 3 requests are served nicely and then latency for a page
load jumps to 40 seconds and more. On the server I get multiple
dispatch.fcgi processes looping forever and driving CPU load to 100%.
The page I look at is a simple hello world...
So I deinstalled fastcgi, installed the newest mod_rails / passenger
and hello world worked. Before porting the complete application I
build a login-page and after some twisting I get the pages running
nicely. After two tests page latency is going up, 40 seconds and more
and on the server I get, guess what, looping ruby interpreter
processes, driving performance of the CPU to 100%.
The same pages,hello world, login and the complete application,
however, render nicely in a local mongrel server in eclipse wuth 1.8.6
ruby, 2.1.0 rails on a Windows XP machine.
What is going wrong on my server ? I am getting desperate a bit by
