Ruby-on-rails – God vs. Monit


Which one to use for process monitoring and why?

Best Answer

God leaks memory pretty badly so I chose Monit for my VPS. Monit runs at about 2MB of RAM constantly, whereas my god install running on Ruby 1.8.6 leaked out to about 60MB of RAM in about 36 hours. I didn't want to monitor my system monitoring tool so I scrapped God and went over to Monit and have had absolutely no problems.
