Documentation update: spawning methods explained

By Hongli Lai on February 27th, 2009

We are delighted to see that the Phusion Passenger community sponsorship campaign was a success. Our thanks to all who have contributed!

We are very close to releasing 2.1; the documentation is coming along quite nicely. One of the areas of Phusion Passenger that is not widely understood, is the different spawning methods that it supports, i.e. smart spawning vs conservative spawning. We’ve taken our time to document this in detail, by explaining how it works, the pros and cons of smart vs conservative spawning, possible gotchas and how to deal with them.

If you’re interested, please review this and post any comments that you may have. Thanks!
