Rails, multiple connections and threads


#1

Hi,

I have a rails app which currently does the following

“After the launch of the page, there is a button click which starts
another ruby script on server using system(ruby )” This
execution may take a while around 5-10 mins.

I have following questions

  1. While the script is being executed are other connection requests to
    server waiting or are there services?
  2. Is there a number parallel connections concept with rails? If yes how
    to configure it?
  3. Should I make the script call as part of a new Thread to avoid other
    conenctions from waiting?

Thanks,
Sudhindra

Might want to try:

fork { ruby #{RAILS_ROOT}/script/some_script.rb }
