Does mongrel ever freeze up?

I am seeing a small Rails app freeze up after being up for a while. It
appears
to be unrelated to usage, but to happen after about a months’ or more
time.

In my experience, they can die after a period of time. I usually use
something like lighttpd/fastcgi instead because it will keep a pool of
rubies on stand-by, and clean them up as they die off.

Unless you’re on somes broken OS or version of Ruby or an ancient
Mongrel version, it’s more than likely the application’s fault.

We still have production Mongrel processes that have been running for
over a year in some places and serving regular traffic.
