Moving From REE to 1.9.2 in Production

I moved my production box from REE to 1.9.2 today. The process was made very easy by using RVM. As i’m using nginx and passenger, I needed to compile a new copy of nginx with the passenger module included.

Once all done, I benchmarked the knightsarmy site the same way I had done in an earlier post. With REE i was hitting 25.07 requests per second. With 1.9.2 I managed 33.93 per second.
