Description

my setup:

virtual machine with 2 cores and 4 gb ram
debian 7
postgresql
paster
nginx
mediagoblin 0.6.2.dev
init script from joar

i want to test the performance of paster and evaluate other application-servers like gunicorn.

5 requests/sec works fine, but with 6 something breaks.

i get a "504 Gateway Time-out" from nginx, meaning the backend is not there.

also stopping of paster don't work:

root@mediagoblin:~# /etc/init.d/mediagoblin-paster stop
Stopping GNU MediaGoblin paster fcgi server: mediagoblin-paster failed!

if i kill the processes and restart it, it works again.

error from the paster log:

Hm. I'm not sure why this would be since it looks like you're using the multiprocess approach above, not multithreaded stuff (which actually very well might break). It looks like it's an SQLAlchemy-connected-to-the-db error. But why? I'm not sure... I think this will take more digging.

Hi David,

Thanks very much for taking the time to raise this issue. I've just attempted a similar test on a less powerful machine running Nginx, Postgresql and Debian 8.5 using ApacheBench (ab). I was able run 100 successful successful requests with 10 concurrent connections:

ab -n 100 -c 10 https://mymediagoblinsite/u/ben/m/myitem/

Give this successful test and that we're now three major versions on, I'd suggest that we close this issue for now. If David or anyone else is able to replicate this issue on version 0.9.0 (reported for 0.6.2.dev), please reopen the ticket.

Cheers,
Ben
