Rails + thin + nginx >> Debian on the bare hardware
Does anyone know of a rails app + ruby app that can be used to benchmark the performance of a ruby on rails rig? Otherwise I'm going to build a basic benchmarking suite and could use input and advice.
My benchmark app will be split up between a Rails App and a ruby script serving as a client. The Ruby script will handle all the benchmarking, since I just don't know enough about the internals of rails to properly record each stage of a test.
The script will do simple get requests, and the rails app will have different database functions attached to said get requests, and I'll just record the response times.
Any thoughts on the matter of testing? Or perhaps speculation as to how virtualization using vSphere will impact rails performance. Any thoughts on my server configuration are welcome too, it's been a while since I've reviewed the ruby server scene.
I'm off to a quick start, it doesn't feel very precise though. I need to do some stats research to and figure out what datapoints and calculations need to be made for a proper report.
