When I initially start up my server I have two thin processes running
that are only about 200M in size. They slowly creep up a few megs an
hour until now a week later they are at 400M and 300M respectively.
I realize that my site (http://wlodb.com) has some intensive pages that
take a couple seconds to render (most notably http://wlodb.com/compounds
) but I’m wondering if this is normal? I usually get about 500,000 page
hits a month.
Should I have a cronjob to restart my server processes once a week or
should I just work on implementing some server side caching which should
resolve the issue?
