The rails app I have created is an online assessment for 3rd - 5th
graders. When the project goes into production there will be 300-400
kids accessing the site at the same time. I have been speeking with
several hosting companies and the last one I spoke with suggested
measuring the memory usage for one user and multiply that by the number
of users (300-400). Then they will give me suggestions on what I should
be using for a hosting package.
Does anyone know how to check the memory usage of the rails app? I have
never worried or have had to deal with this before and am lost. This is
the first app I am deploying.
Or does anyone have suggestions on hosting packages that would be
suitable for 300-400 users hitting the site at once. I am guessing a
dedicated server will be needed but I am also trying to do this low cost
without having the site be extremely slow.
Thanks in advance!
