How does a web request make it through a Rails app? And, what happens when a lot of them are coming in, all at once? If you've ever been curious about how requests are handled, or about how to analyze and configure your infrastructure for optimally managing throughput, then this talk is for you!

In this session, you'll learn about the makeup of an individual web request, how Rails environments can best be setup to handle many requests at once, and how to keep your visitors happy along the way. We'll start by following a single request to its response, and scale all the way up through navigating high traffic scenarios.
