Blog opened!

Posted 02 Nov 2005

So finally I managed to get me a place in the blogosphere. Hey!

The main purpose of this blog will be to keep a log of (my) activities related to improving performance of the Rails web application framework.

A good deal of work already went into performance improvement since realease 0.12.1. To sum it up: I managed to improve the throughput of a recipe database application by a factor of 4 since I started this work, going from around 50 requests per second to over 220 requests per seconds.

In order to ease performance measurements of Rails applications, I have developed the package railsbench. It really does make performance regression tests easy, so give it try!

And stay tuned for further improvements :-)
