It's similar, but the difference is, it's based not on checking
processes and such, but actually managing child processes of the
spawner. When using FastCGI with Rails (I used to do that with lighttpd)
we had the spinner and spawner scripts that checked on the running
processes and relaunched them if they were dead. But mod_rails actually
launches and kills workers based on timeouts and request logs.. It's
smarter in the way it works, and using the global queue option you can
get better predictability with apps having long requests.

But I still use mongrels in production, launching and controlling them
with monit. I still need to test more on the working of mod_rails to
know for sure it'll meet my production requirements. That's why I said
it's EASIER but didn't say it's better.

Bye,

Guy.
