uG has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Each of my Views has various thumbnails dynamically created and presented by a Catalyst::View::Thumbnail. But each image uses one of the FastCGI processes, so each request ends up using about 10 processes or more. How many processes should I use, or rather how should I determine the optimal amount?
