  • Luckily, the official LiteStack benchmarks include measurements for LiteCable against Redis, which I am going to quote here.

  • AppSignal

    🟥 AppSignal for Ruby gem

  • Continuous monitoring of your app's WebSocket performance metrics using tools like AppSignal is your friend here. Reusing the ActionCable consumer on the client side is also advisable, as it will prevent wasting Pub/Sub connections.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • shoelace-css

    A collection of professionally designed, every day UI components built on Web standards. SHOELACE IS BECOMING WEB AWESOME. WE ARE LIVE ON KICKSTARTER! 👇👇👇

  • Here's what this looks like - note that I'm using Shoelace components for styling purposes.

  • AnyCable

    AnyCable for Ruby applications

  • LiteCable is tailored for vertical scaling by a tight integration of components. If you extract maximum performance from the SQLite engine, the limits of this approach are pushed a lot further. Once you observe that your latencies start to explode, though, I would suggest researching options like AnyCable, which inherently provide better strategies for horizontal scaling.
