I’ve recently launched a Rails app in MVP mode, and since it’s still small I’m able to get by with just the starter plan and a single node. Normally this app uses around ~350-400mb of RAM which is expected. So far the experience with Render has been great!
It seems that anytime I go into shell mode and try to start a rails console to look at some data, I can see the memory usage double (expected), but then it seems that the node gets terminated or something. My website becomes unresponsive, my shell access gets terminated, and I then see the application reboot. Basically means I can’t really use the shell for much.
One great thing about the heroku console is that it launches a separate container/dyno, which is then billed by the second. Super helpful for rails apps so I can easily explore the data, or do small data tweaks and things like that.
Is something like this possible with Render?
