Composer, Capistrano and Github at scale: beware of the stampede
At LinkORB we like to deploy new features into production, many times a day. Those deploys contact the Github servers, for our own code, but also for many third-party packages thanks to Composer, which is part of our build process. Like us, you may soon start hitting thresholds in production by deploying so often to so many machines, cloning so many repositories from Github. Eventually this will slow down your deploy process... and at some point you will start seeing failures and roll-backs... Read on to find out how we handled that.
