Default So.. you guys killed the gl4x4 server :(

for the computer peeps, I just did some research on why the server has been sucking lately.. 2.5 million bust ram shutdowns in the last 40 days, and the processors has been running at an average of 95%. Well, one has. The other one has been running at 0% :tonka:

A bunch of sites, especially 4x4 sites are hosted on the same server, as well as my e-commerce site..
upgrade on the way

I have no idea what a "bust ram shutdown" is. But 2.5 million of them prolly aint good. It is kinda wierd to me that linux is not using the second CPU It should be getting cycles from buth?? Also have you done a DB Reorg lately. I am not sure what it is called in mySQL but most databases need to be re-orged/Statistics updated as the sizes of tables change significantly.

Just some thoughts...

According to the pic and title for CC's avatar, a bust ram is $50.

I have done DB CHECK with everything comming out great.. I was scared to run the DB REPAIR though, since the check turned out fine.


Bust ram shutdown (explained to me from LiquidWeb) is they allow a 100% burst ram "loan" from other servers when my server is overrun. the loan can only last for <2.??? seconds before it goes into a bust ram shutdown, meaning the loaner computer cut off the ram loan.

Doesn't make sense to me, but for my reading last night, its not good.

Are there any problems running a SQL repair? It hasn't had one done in over 2 months.

And vbulletin stats says there are 58,000 PM's on the server now..

If the PM Sort feature exists and you can enable it, I can probably eliminate approx 3800 of them very quickly. :tonka:

DB Check interesting our software we run Db_clean, Db_repair, and Db_recovery probably just a coincedence with the terminology.

Not sure how much RAM you have but 2 gig on my server and it still bottle necks when we get about 600 or more members on at a time.

In your VB admin panel whats the server load normally and at peak times ? Is this a shared server ?
