Slow-down with Capistrano?


#1

This could be entirely my imagination, but it feels like my apps are
ever
so slightly less responsive after deploying with Capistrano.

Is that even possible?

I hesitate to ever say ANYTHING is impossible, but I will say it is
extremely unlikely. Capistrano does not muck with your app’s runtime
environment.

If you have a custom deployment recipe, it may be that your recipe is
doing something that is resulting in the slow-down, but if your app
is slow, it is almost certainly due to something other than Capistrano.

It does add an extra level of indirection in file
access via the ‘current’ symlink in the standard
configuration, but I have to agree that it’s highly
unlikely anyone would notice that at the other end
of the pipe. :slight_smile:

In the event that this happens to anyone else…

In the old way (“ftp these files to the server”) I kept
server/environment-specific files out of Subversion. In Capistrano,
these
files stay in Subversion.

Long story short, make sure you set things up for Production /
dispatch.fcgi.
Development / dispatch.Cgi is slow.
