Important: Nginx + Haproxy + Mongrel Question

Hi Asif,

What fails completely ? HaProxy, Mongrel or Nginx ?

I noticed that for instance had over 50 mongrels assigned  
to it. At an average memory usage of 60-80 meg (just after startup)  
that is an enormous amount of memory in use (if I understand your  
config correctly), is the problem with the underlying server platform?  
Possibly swapping, or spending all its time scheduling processes?
