I’m running a photo gallery type of app. I create thumbnails for the
original images via RMagick upon request and then save away the
thumbnails in case they’re requested again.
I’m running 3 clustered mongrels with litespeed on ubuntu 6.
After doing about 20 (they’re fairly big images mind) var/log/syslog
warns me that the mongrels where “out of memory” and it kindly shut
them all down for me.
Do I need to…
- Ditch mongrel?
- Reduce the mem used by rmagick?
- Limit mongrels mem usage to stop the system killing it?
- … or finally not do hefty processing on a web server… (I dont
really like this option)
Any hit this before?
I understand mongrel had mem leak issues but I read the latest version
(which I’m running) is fine…
