SU-Server: Scheduled Hardware upgrade
January 18, 2012 in SaabsUnited Related
Reminder: This last weekend of extreme amounts of data upload caused the RAM to fill up a bit on the server which made it really slow at times, so we decided to buy bigger and better memory cards. 16 GB of RAM will be added to the server and those will be installed at 21:30 Central European Time
tomorrow tonight. During this time the server will probably be down for about 45-60 minutes. We’re also going to do some database updates while we’re at it.
With the new memory cards installed we anticipate that the days of server overload due to extreme amounts of visitors will be history. The server should easily be able to handle up to at least 150’000 visitors per day. During the bankruptcy days in december we peaked at up to 76’000 visitors several days in a row.
A third SU-Server is on the drawing board as well together with a new DNS server that will be acquired soon as well.
You should take this as a sign, that we expect the servers to be working hard again while we’re posting nice news about Saab! =)
