I have a RoR application running under Apache2 w/ mod_fcgid
Whenever I submit a large number of database updates asynchronously
from IE, I notice that 10-12 fcgi processes (dispatch.fcgi) are
Eventually the server issues a "Rails application failed to start
error and sends it back to the browser (which is expecting XML).
I'm guessing that it's wanting to spawn another fcgi process and
When I run exactly the same operation in firefox (from a unix box or
only 2 or 3 fcgi processes are spawned and the operation completes
Does anyone know what's going on?
