Scaling a Ruby on Rails app on Heroku

I have had to spend a considerable amount of time scaling Rails applications for things like major product launches to live TV events like SharkTank and Beyond The Tank and national TV marketing campaigns.From all that experience, the most effective way I have found to scale a web application is to do the following:Implement sufficient application performance monitoring (I use NewRelic)Gather data (ideally, load test until you scale out)Identify what the bottleneck wasFix the bottleneck🔁 Repeat (until you hit a goal or run out of time)The reason why this is so effective is because it ensures that you spend your time fixing the actual constraint of your system.
