I run a small discoures instance over at discuss.pixls.us. We’ve only got about 55 users, with 70-ish topics and ~350 posts at the moment. It’s all running on a 2GB droplet at digital ocean.
I notice that after a few hours or so, the site starts to load very slowly (40-60+ seconds at best - sometimes worse). After poking around a bit, I noticed a while back that
passenger-status was showing the queue stuck at 100 requests when the site was almost completely non-responsive. This was fixed by touching restart.txt.
When the site begins to feel very sluggish again, touching restart.txt would begin rolling shutdowns of passenger processes, and immediately the site becomes snappy again.
I’m on v1.4.0.beta1 +34.
Is this something anyone else may have noticed?
