    Our app is built using Ruby on Rails. We deploy on Heroku via github. We have separate instances for prod and staging, and can increase/decrease dyno's depending on load.

  • Load and Performance Testing on Heroku

    We keep the Metrics tab open while we load test, and hit refresh to see what’s going on: heroku metric

    I would expect the graphs to expand with some sort of detail, but that’s not the case. So these metrics aren’t very useful. The logs are far more useful, so we just keep the tail open while we test.

  • StackShare

    Not having to deal with servers is a huge win for us. There are certainly trade-offs (having to wait if the platform is down as opposed to being able to fix the issue), but we’re happy being on Heroku right now. Being able to focus 100% of our technical efforts on application code is immensely helpful.

    Two dynos seems to be the sweet spot for our application. We can handle traffic spikes and get pretty consistent performance otherwise.

    We have a total of four apps on Heroku: Legacy Leanstack, StackShare Prod, StackShare Staging, StackShare Dev. Protip: if you’re setting up multiple environments based on your prod environment, just run heroku fork app name. Super useful, it copies over your db, add-ons, and settings.

    We have a develop branch on GitHub that we push to dev to test out, then if everything is cool we push it to staging and eventually prod. Hotfixes of course go straight to staging and then prod usually.

    Easy deployment and high scalability. We want to scale.

    Heroku is amazing. We use the effortless git integration to deploy code for review to our clients. We also have projects that run on Heroku in production.
