We know about the Server Busy

Recommended Posts

Steven P.    13,875

We ordered a 3rd server and Marcel (Redmak) has it setup in the following order

1x P4 2.8GHz (Dual) Xeon with 4GB Memory <- MySQL Server

2x P4 2.8GHz (Dual) Xeon with 2GB Memory <- Apache (HTML) Server with load-balancing

This means we have 2 servers doing the work for apache requests.

Our Ad software and all images will also be moved from the MySQL server to the load balanced HTML servers (server2 and 3) in the morning.

The load balancing solution is hardware (not software) and we also purchased a spam filter that checks mail before it reaches our mail server, dropping spam before it can create load on the mail server. Mail will also be left on the MySQL server.

the Planet (our host) has been great throughout with advice, assistance and timdorr assisted with the configuration of our load-balancer.

So fear not! We are working on the problem by chucking money at it, paid for by our generous members who do not block our ads. Thanks to you guys.

ps: The 3rd server was enabled a half hour ago, so it will take a while before it becomes effective, and we still need to move the rest of the data from the MySQL, performance should however increase in the coming hours.

It probably doesn't help that slashdot have a link to the topic about Bill Gates photos from 1985 on their main page at the moment :)

I think Tim disabled that page, so it'll die eventually. ;)
