WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Almost a year ago I gave up on using MongoDB due to the problems with its memory usage, but now I see several blogs about MongoDB being used on WebFaction hosts, and even a short doc at WebFaction support on installing and running the server.

Does that mean that there is some solution to using MongoDB on a shared WebFaction host? The problem was that MongoDB uses a lot of memory due to memory mapped files, but releases it to the OS as soon as the OS requires it. Therefore it can not be problematic for other users on the host, but still the watchdog kills the process because it is using too much memory.

Does anyone run a reasonably big database (100.000's of records) without these problems on a shared WebFaction host and if so, how?

We don't keep track of such stats, so a testimony from a mongodb customer would be better, but with some of the features we've implemented recently, like the cgroups and the memory quota raise, would definitely make MongoDB run much smoother on our latest 64-bit CentOS servers, than a year ago.
