I am right now developing the customized web portal in RoR framework
and using MySQL as database.
I am facing the problem in terms of no. of users it can support.I am
hostong the application on a normal desktop configuration server which
is 80GB HDD and 1GB RAM.Now,as soon as it reaches around 100 users,the
CPU usage becomes 100% and the server stops responding.
Now,I am not able to figure out whether it is a problem of
1)Not using the connection pooling mechanism correctly in RoR
2)Not using the higher capacity server
Please post your feedback on this scalability issue.It will be very
helpful to me and my company.
