I have found that two mongrels is about the limit for a 256MB VPS

(seancribbs.com uses just 1). In testing on my MacBook Pro, Mongrel
takes around 65MB with a basic Radiant site. The same site with Thin
takes 34MB. You should consider using Thin if you can, especially if
you want to run more than one app. Make sure you have at least Thin
1.0, earlier versions had some strange problems with Radiant.
1. On an average Radiant site that doesn't have much updates and uses
out-of-box caching, what kind of memory do you see being used for the
Mongrel? How many Mongrels should I cluster? I was thinking that I
should cluster 2 or 3 since I'm going to serve the images from the
public folder directly.
Sean, thanks! I think HostingRails' "dedicated memory" option is
different from a VPS. It guarantees you a certain amount of memory in a
"shared hosting" setting. I guess that means it should exclude the
Apache & MySQL. Given that, if 65MB is the rough number you are
observing, I guess I can only squeeze in 2x Mongrels for Radiant at that
stage. I may have to move to a VPS/ dedicated server at a later stage,
but right now, I'm quite short on time and don't really feel like
setting up almost everything from scratch... let me see what I can
manage in this time.
