Passenger vs. Unicorn | Engine Yard Blog | Engine Yard Blog

While being able to run several applications under one setup is useful, Passenger has several faults. It’s difficult to monitor; If one of the workers has a problem and dies, it sits there stuck in memory until someone or something clears it out. Here at Engine Yard, that would be a Support Engineer or our passenger_monitor cron job. Some applications seem to have this problem more than others; it really depends on load and request volume. Also, when Passenger is restarted, sometimes the old application processes do not respond to the master Passenger’s kill signal, and there’s currently no automation in place on Cloud to kill them. This is especially a problem when a server is experiencing high load.
