Deployed Meteor Dies after a Few Hours?


#1

I’ve deployed my code to Meteor’s free subdomain and it works. But if I don’t touch the site for a few hours, the next time I access it, I get a big error page. When I check my logs, things seem fine except every so often there’s a line about sleeping and killed. Does this mean that the app gets killed if it’s not actively being used?

free hosting, it shutdown after inactivity


#3

That’s what I thought. What’s the expected average time it should take to come back up when I visit it again?

At the moment, it usually takes upwards of 10 minutes to come back up which seems like an insanely long time.


#4

For me there was usually countdown and that was like 1 minute or so.
But sometimes whole hosting or mongo is down, so it dont work 100%.
It is free :smiley:


#5

Is there an FAQ somewhere about the free hosting? One that would cover estimated down time and re-up time, among other relevant topics?

I know that there’s status.meteor.com but that’s not all that helpful since it only says if free hosting is up or not.
