I’m getting ready to finally launch my fly.io app, but I have a couple questions still. I want to make sure that when I point the domain to the new DNS that it can handle the traffic. My current site has about 18-50 visitors at any given time. Over the course of a week I’ll get about 60k page views. During “launch weeks” where we launch a new product visitors reach 100-200 at the high peaks.
With that said I will my current settings be enough to handle the traffic? Will everything be snappy for the users(response times).
I’m on a shared cpu 1x with 1GB ram with count set to 3 and max per region not set.
Any advice to help me get up and running would be great. I’m assuming then I can monitor after its up and running to get a better idea exactly of what settings could get optimized.
It depends on what your website does. If it’s mostly static then that should easily be enough. If it does lots of heavy processing then it might not be enough. It might be worth over-provisioning to begin with (maybe to 5 or 6 nodes) then scaling back once you’ve established how many nodes you’ll need.
Thank you so much for the reply that was super helpful. That makes total sense to start above where I need to be. The site is mostly static with a log-in to access downloadable content behind a login with cookie sessions. I do also show/hide certain content based on if the user is logged in.
What exactly does having 5 or 6 nodes mean exactly? Is that 5-6 extra VM’s at every edge?
If I do hit a ceiling with nodes or ram in the future for some reason, will I get notified via email or something letting me know?
