86 / 100 Desktop
71 / 100 Mobile
I can fix it so that it goes to 85, done it before but the way NodeBB is built doesn't allow me to do this and have the site fully functional.
100 / 100 User Experience 👍 (Like duh?) lol...
I followed the walk-through to get things setup on Heroku and somehow this question never occurred to me:
Does NodeBB support load-balancing? Are there any in-memory data structures that aren't managed through Redis/Mongo (web sockets?) that would cause problems with spinning up extra web dynos to handle additional user load?
Untested, but in a nutshell, theoretically, there shouldn't be any problems.
All user data is stored on Redis, including sessions, meaning it is possible to spin up a cluster of NodeBB instances for load balancing purposes.
Outside of heroku, I've been thinking of using something like
pm2 to try this out.
@julian Good to know it's theoretically possible.
We may be your first guinea pigs :). I'll let you know how it goes once we get there.
