I have a rails app which currently does the following

"After the launch of the page, there is a button click which starts
another ruby script on server using system(ruby <file-name>)" This
execution may take a while around 5-10 mins.

I have following questions

1. While the script is being executed are other connection requests to
server waiting or are there services?
2. Is there a number parallel connections concept with rails? If yes how
to configure it?
3. Should I make the script call as part of a new Thread to avoid other
conenctions from waiting?

Might want to try:
   fork { `ruby #{RAILS_ROOT}/script/some_script.rb` }
