Derailed benchmark not running on production environment

We're running a large rails application, with a lot of request.
Since our upgrade to FreeBSD 13 the live environment is leaking memory in our ruby on rails app.
(FreeBSD 12 version of the jail didn't leak)

This application uses an NFS mount to store (a lot) of client specific files.

Running derailed_benchmark live didn't work. (Pressing ctrl+t, I noticed there were a lof of NFS locks)

In the file

it adds '.' to the loadpath. Which causes the production environment to complete iterate over all directories. Which 'hangs', because we have a very big active-strorage directory.

Workaround is to remove the '.' file

#    %W{ . lib test config }.each do |file|
    %W{ lib test config }.each do |file|
      $LOAD_PATH << File.expand_path(file)

Ruby rbtrace ArgumentError: command is too long

(This code blow requires you to include rbtrace in your gems)

To make a stack dump of your running rubyprocess, you could use somthing like this:

bundle exec rbtrace -p $my_pid -e '{GC.start;require "objspace";"/tmp/ruby-heap.dump", "w"); ObjectSpace.dump_all(output: io); io.close}'

Unfortunately on FreeBSD / Mac OS X this results in (ArgumentError: command is too long)

A workaround for this, is to simply put the code in ruby file, and just load it. For example:
/tmp/rbcode.rb. With the following content{GC.start;require "objspace";"/tmp/ruby-heap.dump", "w"); ObjectSpace.dump_all(output: io); io.close}

Next you can use rbtrace lik this:

bundle exec rbtrace -p $my_pid -e 'load("/tmp/rbcode.rb")'

Slow Assets Fix

To improve compile Sometimes you just need to cleanup the assets cache

rake assets:clobber
rake assets:precompile

Bundle Hangs on bundle update

I finally found a reason why sometimes my 'bundle update' hangs infinitely.. It keeps showing dots... and takes forever..

bundle audit
Resolving dependencies...........   *sigh* ...

I have some gems that are available only for authorized users.
When the ssh keychain is still locked (haven't entered a password for my ssh-key yet) Bundler keeps running infinitely without showing any password entry...
