Discussion on: Your Heroku App Is Slow to Load Because Of This.

if app is asleep and 10 users enter at same time will be slow for only 1 user or for 10 users?
Also if you usually have an app with 1k visitors is it really that bad that only 1 will get slow load?
But really nice solutions and I might apply to my projects

Good question @bairrada97 . If the app is asleep it will only be slow to load for the first person to wake the app.
So if I am the first person to load the app, then it will only be slow for me, if after 5 minutes someone else tries to load the app, it will not be slow.

For the second question:
Yeah it's not that bad for just one person (that's why I consider Heroku generous). But why does my app need to sleep anyway if I have more than enough hours per month
