first hit after periods of inactivity is slow
I noticed that the first hit to my rails app after about 2-3 minutes of the server being completely idle takes about 5 seconds longer than subsequent hits. I read in other posts that this behavior is normal for the first hit when the webserver has just been turned on, but i have slowdown after periods of idle as well. I imagine this wouldn't be an issue once the server is under more load, but since it's just me using the server at the moment, I notice this slowdown alot. I was wondering if this is the normal behavior, or indicative of some other problem?
