Are heroku Dynos used up?

#1 by Fabian_V

Hello everybody,

unfortunately I dont know much about how heroku dynos work.

I have been testing my experiment using the Standard-2X Version with 1 web Dyno and 1 worker Dyno without any problems.

My question is now whether the capacity of the dynos is used up? Do I need new Dynos for my experiment if I keep using it this way?

Also, will heroku inform me if the capacity is reached?

Any response would be great!

If it's working fine for you now, keep using it. Dynos are not a quota that gets used up, they are a server that you can keep using as long as you pay for it.

I am also lost regarding the dynos choices. I tested my experiment with a pilot using 1 dyno web Standard 2x, it went well (36 participants at the same time). Unfortunately, it crashed when running the main exp (more than 70 participants at the same time)... I wanted to keep the standard 2x dyno but with upgrading it to 3 web dynos, yet I read in the documentation that I should keep 1 web dyno. Do you have any idea on how I can fix this issue ?

Thank you,
