9.6. Summary

In this chapter, we tackled the issue of web application performance, with particular attention given to configuring Rails and using Ajax to help provide immediate feedback to the user. The strategies we explored:


Optimizing sessions

Either by using faster session storage mechanism or disabling sessions altogether


Caching output

Reducing or eliminating the time that Rails spends rendering each request


Merging and minimizing assets

Reducing the overhead involved in transferring JavaScript and CSS files so common in Ajax-heavy applications


Detaching long-running tasks

Using Ajax to update the user to the task progress
