Hi Just wondering whats reasonable to expect in terms of mongrels CPU usage. I've established an app with 1 mongrel instance on a debian etch box. This process idles (yes idles) on 10% - 20% - this means say I install 10 apps each with 2 mongrels, I've used twice my cpu capacity _without_ even accepting a hit! is this reasonable/typical behvaviour from mongrel? What are the minimum specs of a cpu people are typically using for mongrel? heres my /proc/cpuinfo: processor : 0 vendor_id : AuthenticAMD cpu family : 6 model : 10 model name : AMD Athlon(tm) stepping : 0 cpu MHz : 1250.065 cache size : 512 KB fdiv_bug : no hlt_bug : no f00f_bug : no coma_bug : no fpu : yes fpu_exception : yes cpuid level : 1 wp : yes flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr sse syscall mmxext 3dnowext 3dnow up ts bogomips : 2506.90 Thanks for any hints Glenn

I'm on a VPS at a2hosting with 10-12 other apps on the box and, looking at top, your numbers are way out of whack. There's a new, better place to post your question. Robby Russell from PlanetArgon started it for just this kind of thing and all the top-level Rails admin talent is there. http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-deployment?hl=en They're here too, of course. It's just a signal/noise thing. hth, Bill

CPU usage should be negligible when not processing requests. Are you sure you're not accidentally reading the value from the memory usage column?
