The memory shown on the sales page (https://www.xojo.com/store/index.php) is it fully available for our applications?
For example, for the small Xojo Cloud Server, 512Mb are fully available for our applications?
(Or part of this memory is taken by the operating system and various tools?)
Yes, I had actually assumed that the web app took only a few Mb. The rest is taken by the operating system and tools.
Without the web app, there must be about 250-260 MB free.
A real web app takes on average 30 to 120 MB with the database. On average, we can therefore upload one or two small web apps on the small server, there will be some memory for point operations, backups, operating system operations, etc…
Here, indeed, the memory management of CGI is useful.

I hope you are not surprised by that. Every session takes memory, even if it is short lived, and released some time in the future.
It does, but what you did could be considered legitimate traffic.
By the way, i suggest you get the server owner’s permission if doing that in the future. Flooding an app with hundreds of unexpected connections could easily crash an app if it’s still in testing or has database intensive methods.
Yes of course 600 http request all in one go from a single host. Yup
With all the marketing spin on how great, secure the Xojo cloud service is. I am sure that not just myself but others over the years have been here before
and historically anything realsoftware/Xojo have announced normally has to be halved, then halved again to get the truth of things.
There is very little or limited information on the new Xojo cloud service, no mention of PCI compliancy, SSL, security etc. Is this information available ???
