I’m running Windows XP Pro on a not-so-new machine, Pentium 4 2.4GHz
with 512 RAM. I’ve got Apache 2 installed and I’m using FastCGI to run
Typo in development mode while I design a theme for it. But it’s slow,
Inconsistently slow. If I reload a page, sometimes it happens pretty
quickly. Sometimes it takes more than a minute. Sometimes it gives me
an error message where the app doesn’t load at all. Sometiems I get the
page but without any CSS applied to it (even though reloading it works
I had to firstly limit the number of running ruby.exe processes. Before
I configured it to use a maximum of 1, whenever I tried to run Typo a
seemingly endless number of ruby.exe would start; so many that
eventually my computer would crash unless I quickly ran into Task
Manager and shut every instance down. Despite the number of ruby.exe
processes that were running, Typo was still slow. Ruby.exe itself takes
up 25-40MB of RAM at any given moment which I find to be massive.
I’m using the Typo trunk as it’s the only version that works with 1.1.
What is going on here? Surely I don’t want my hosting to be like this,
slow and RAM-devouring. A PHP blog script certainly doesn’t use this
many resources, does it?
