Caching between thin server and db?

Reported by Alex Farrill | June 11th, 2008 @ 05:27 PM | in Future

Hi, I've switched to Thin (from Mongrel) in two of the applications I've launched. I've noticed sporadically in both apps that if I change something in my mysql database, some of the Thin procs will continue to run with the old data (from before the change), and some will query the database as they should. Unfortunately, I don't really have any way of verifying that Thin is doing it, but it's a hunch since it happens on some of the instances and not others (and is fixed when the Thins are restarted). Is such a thing even possible? Thanks for any help, sorry I can't provide you with anything more concrete.

    Well you can check that all thins have been restarted at the same time if the pids are close to one another.

    Also make sure you check the log file for any error preventing one of the thin to restart.

    The problem is I should not have to restart the thin servers when I make a

    change to the database. Is there caching going on at a low level?Thanks,

    oh no! Thin doesn't do any kind of caching.

    But, ActiveRecord caches some queries so that might cause your issue.

    You can reset the cache w/:


    Maybe place that in a hidden action if you need to do that kind of thing.

    Phew, sanity check. Yes, the problem had nothing to do with Thin, or ActiveRecord it turns out -- was grasping at straws! Thanks for your help, enjoying using Thin quite a bit

    Thanks again,
