Typical Memory Usage for a Rails App?

Very happy to have found Trinidad, I'm looking to move a couple medium traffic rails apps to a smaller server (1GB RAM).

To test it out I've moved my smallest site over, and it's been a pleasure to get running and deployed compared to any other server (Puma, Unicorn, even Thin).

After a fresh boot of my pretty simple Rails blog, it is sitting at about 256 MB of memory used.  I can see this being normal, as I understand JVM/jRuby/Tomcat have their memory needs.  Just didn't come across any documentation on expected memory usage and want to know if this is "normal".

It sure is, there's no such thing as a typical Rails app thus it's hard to tell such thing ... You do need to test e.g. locally with production settings.

It will also likely increase a bit as requests come in - the more you'd like tohandle concurrently the more it will need ...
