Hey everyone! So, my team has been experiencing an increase of timeouts from our Heroku dynos and I've been playing around with some ideas, and would love your guys' opinions!
So, my first question is if we create several gen servers for some heavier processing, as the requests continue to hit the endpoints that use these gen servers will the gen server spawn more processes to handle the load, or will it just queue up the other requests?
Another question I have is if we are using Task.start_link in multiple places throughout our application, if it fails during the start_link, will the response timeout and begin pooling up several stale processes in the app?
Thank you for the advice! =)
