Has anyone done any benchmarks regarding requests per second on both bare metal servers and VM’s?
I’m interested to know also when performing benchmarks, are certain pages cached by default? If yes, is there a way to disable caching just to see how things perform w/o caching so all requests go through the entire rails pipeline and code base.
Ofcourse knowing the numbers with caching is also important, but I am just curious as how things will behave without cache. Actually one important thing to note is say the cache gets cleared, your server could potentially go down if it can’t handle the load w/o caching in place.
