Hey, I’m curious if we should be running a Cron job (is it just me, or does that sound dirty?) on a server that caps the memory to 64MB
The site I’m doing this on gets about 200 visitors a day at the time of the writing, although I’m about to open up the floodgates in a few weeks. I’m just wondering which would take less memory, having the realtime reporting turned on, or getting a server to run a Cron job every so often?
My logic suggests that realtime is hard on the server all the time. But at the same time Cron job can cause a spike that might blow RAM out of the water and cause an error since I’m sitting at a meager 64MB
What’s your take?
