More on 500 errors

I banged together a quick script to try to quantify this Dreamhost 500
error problem. Pointing it at my home page, I only got one 500 error in
about 1200 requests. That’s not bad.

However, I see a far higher percentage of 500 errors when I’m composing
a new blog posting (in the preview pane). So now I’m wondering if Ruby
gets killed off a lot when it’s repeatedly running the article filters
while composing, but happily serves up cached content all day while
serving up content.

Just another data point.

If you’re using Typo 2.6 then it uses static page caches and most
requests won’t touch typo itself.

Dreamhost does kill processes sometimes, which annoys me, which is
one possible cause of the problem.
