Friends- I have put up a small tutorial about my experimentations with mongrel clusters behind an HTTP load balancer with no front web server like lighty or apache. This little setup is extremely powerful for how easy it is to set up. I would love for more folks to experiment with this type of setup to expose any issues it may have as a production environment. I have had zero issues with it so far and I am able to get 800-1000 req/sec for static assets and 70-140 req/sec for full blown dynamic rails pages. http://brainspl.at/articles/2006/04/26/dead-simple... Let me know what you think. Cheers- -Ezra
