**WARNO** Possible Downtime
« on: November 05, 2014, 01:45:16 AM »
It's looking this like box may need to get upgraded.

Length of downtime will be dependant upon the route taken (whether it's "resizing" to a larger virtual instance, or doing a migration to a dedicated box).

Unsure of status at this point as pops is sleeping and I'm at work, but wanted to get this out there.

Noticed the site has been down for the last half-hour, give or take.

Server has been beefed up... significantly.

Dual 5606 Procs @ 2.13GHz
8GB Ram

The forums should run like a damned rocket now.

How many cores?  And what class rocket are we talking about?

Quad Core procs.

The hardware is older, but the big thing that was needed was more RAM.

As for rocket class, well, it might be cold war era soviet $#|t, but still faster than a Cessna.

What disks in the old?  The old io wait times seemed high.  I could blame it on low to no disk cache and swapping, but still.

If you really want to turbo charge the forum, look into the apc package.  It's the Alternative PHP Cache and reduces runtime compile of repetitive php code.  It doesn't cache the db queries, so you don't have a dynamic content penalty.
When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. Luke 11:21

Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one."  Luke 22:36

The parent of the old VPS (technically, this is a virtualized instance as well - but it's what we call a "Bare Metal" instance, were it's the only one on the parent) I think had either a 4 or 6 drive RAID-10 setup. The parent for this box is just a 2 drive RAID-1 config.

CPU usage information as well as swap information.

%iowait is how much the processor is waiting for information from the drive(s).
