Frequently asked questions
How much memory do I need for my app container?
For production parse server apps, we recommend a minimum of 256 MB and 512 MB if you intend to run jobs. Request per second is unlimited. There is also no limitation on the number of jobs, push request and total requests per month. The 7 day trial also provides you with the ability to change the app container memory without any charges. You can use this period to evaluate the amount of memory required for your app.
How many containers do I need for my app?
Multiple containers are distributed across different host machines. This ensures your app is highly available and always on. Also, because node.js is single threaded, multiple containers also provide you with the neccessary compute power to serve blocking concurrent requests. From the dashboard, you can monitor the CPU usage of your container. Apps using more than 90% CPU for an extended time period will have to add multiple containers to distribute the workload.
How do I stop billing?
From the dashboard, navigate to deployments > deployed apps. Find your app listed under the displayed table and use the destroy option to delete your app. All billing obligations for this app will be stopped immediately.
