I’m using the digital ocean plan for 4GB Memory 2 Core Processor 60GB SSD Disk 4TB Transfer
It’s for my Discourse production made for local authorities to exchange about land use managment.
I found it quite slow … I put 5 unicorn and 1Gb buffer as indicate to the comment lines in containters/app.yml.
Before that, I’ve tested Discourse on my own desktop machine under openSUSE 13.1 (I’m love that distro) with Docker installed and quite same configuration (it’s 4 Gb memory and 2 core too …)
With Digital Ocean i’m about 220m to 440 ms to display a thread instead of 80 to 180 ms for my testing machine OpenSUSE .
Any suggestion ?
