Forums were upgraded to 4.1.18.2

@Redmak just completed the forum upgrade, we came off a 4.1.16.x version, so there are a few background processes still running.

 

You might notice things are a little bit slower during this period, but everything seems to have gone OK again! :D

Give us update when the background processes are complete, so people don't continuously complain about the new update causing slow downs. :-)

Yep, this update allows for two-factor authentication too (it will not be required, just optional), but I am not going to change any settings until the background processes have completed.

Definitely running WAY slower than usual but everything else seems to be ok.

Please provide an overview of changes in the first post.

 

Also, to make the forum run faster, have you tried overclocking your solid state L2 side bus?

Spoiler

Trust me I am an expert.

The mini-spy is acting kinda weird. Is this related to the rebuild process?

If you could define 'kinda weird', then I may be able to answer that...

Hmmm, going under 5% an hour I guess. So we get roughly 6.5 hours to complete from now. Just some very rough math.

At the time, the minispy was only showing one new entry, as opposed to five. Haven't seen it since though.

That won't be related to the rebuild process. To make it load quicker, I restricted the time range it looks for recent posts somewhat. I guess on Sunday night when it's really quiet, there may not have been many posts to show within that time window. I'll have a look if I can increase it somewhat without slowing the query back down again.

out of curiosity, what processor(s) does the server use that is doing this re-indexing?

It was only showing one or two threads. However it's not doing it any more.

 

Edit: Oops! Didn't notice Marshall's post at first.

Hopefully this addresses the ghost notifications issue.

Have a look at Neowin Credits, it gives you some idea about what is powering the site.
