I'm not 😴 ... instead of 🛌 i am ____________

… writing software.

had a rough evening with @peter’s livestream… couldn’t help but feel disappointed in the system not performing as I had hoped… and, if i’m to be honest, disappointed in myself a bit too.

lots of great data was collected though, which i’m happy about… to be more specific, i think my workers were not aligned with my CPU count. re: our current architecture, i should have one worker per CPU core (real or logical), allowing at least 512mb of ram per worker. so… i should need to have at least that number times the number of logical cores on the server.

i need to do the maths… :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

like… maybe… 2GB it’s 3-4 workers but with 1GB only 2…? lots of memory, 1-2 workers per logical core. i’ll need to test.

am hoping for this type of experience:

But… it’s looking more like:

:neutral_face:

… so, your turn…!

Peter, I think you’re being too hard on yourself. What you’re executing here is no easy feat. Turn this around; if it was anyone else, you’d not be so hard on them. Be as kind on yourself as you are to others. :nerd_face:

I’m not sleeping either. So what am I doing? Well, I write at least one quote a day.
I saw a photo of a friend of mine in South Africa. I was so moved by it that I wrote a quote.

This made her day. If I can make at least one person in a day realize that they matter; that’s a successful day for me.

Her response made my day as well :slight_smile:

I couldn’t even fake it if I tried. There are so many in the same boat, which makes it feel less intimidating.
As long as we can figure out the ins-and-outs of trading; we’ll leave the technical stuff for the brainiacs :grin:

We shouldn’t have overload the server that much if CDN is already in place. Warning, speculation on the way, because I know nothing about your infrastructure:
In your CDN cluster configuration are you using Round Robin distribution? This might be the bottleneck, because this way the master process gets all incoming connection, then it tries to distribute the load to the actual workers. When hundreds of people are smashing F5 on the site at once, it can overload the master, while the workers are not getting any load.
Hmm, maybe I would give more CPU to the master, and configure as many real cores for the workers as many cores I have. But testing will show what is the most optimal setting, I’m sure you will find it! :slight_smile:

Could it be the ruby performance as well?
Blocking/nonblocking io ?
Have you considered this?
Software is hard.
Especially now the amount of choices we have make it even harder.
You can only improve software - it is never done.

thanks man! working through it every day… as you may know, there are so
many different things that can go wrong or impact performance!

My big issue is understanding if this is a CPU issue or a memory issue. Working through some tests now.

Most likely it will be a memory issue.
How much do you have at the moment?

Can we deploy the discourse on Google and compare the performance to digital ocean?
