    Another server upgrade appears to be necessary, how is the site speed for you?

    I'm somewhat surprised as I know we have had growth I guess I just have not realized how much. We have essentially tripled in data in just 11 months:

    I've increased the amount of memory available for scripts but the server is maxed and from looking at the traffic charts, the amount of data be sent from the forums has trippled in the past 12 months and the real solution is more cpu and more ram.

    problem is the site seem to be growing pretty quickly and it may not give enough headroom....Let em see what we can come up with on a custom side...I'll to get back with you friday am on it.
    I honestly feel like we could and should be growing faster but if we already maxed the dedicated server we just got on not too long ago apparently I'm doing something right.

    This is going to come at a large increased cost but I want to get your feedback on how the site speed is for you before I spend the money.

    I've noticed a considerable slow down in site speed, when loading pages etc. Thought it was just my connection but every other site seems to run fine. Sounds like it's time for an upgrade.

    Yep, noticed a major slowdown too. I guess it's a good sign.

    I'm not complaining, it's a necessity to support the current forum and for future growth. Will also allow me to add more features which I have been itching to do.

    It's actually a nice thing to max out hardware.

    Man is the server getting hammered... sorry guys.

    You'll have a hardware upgrade ASAP, I'm giving the go ahead and it's going to be a big (expensive Click here to enlarge ) one. It's a good thing I suppose.

    Site slowing down again as we approach peak hours... on a Friday no less. Wow.

    Just a few more days until we get the new server guys, I promise. We will also be getting a software update. Once we get the new server I can start adding new features.

    Ok just gave the go ahead.

    We are moving to a quad core server so essentially 2.5x the cpu and also 3x the ram. Also adding 2x 10k drives in RAID.

    Going to hurt the pocketbook a bit but I want you guys to have the best forum.

    I won't provide all of them but it's a quad core processor, more ram, and 2 x 10k drives in Raid5.
