Server Move

March 7, 2006

The first wave of new servers just came online. We’ll be configuring them and moving the site over tonight, so there may be some funkiness in the interim.

UPDATE: Move complete. Let’s see how this new hardware holds up.

    The server upgrade to Ping-O-Matic was really a great move. While beeing our most famous blog pinging service, there had been lot´s of site availability downtime recently (as you can read from the PingOMatic Stats as well). At least if you tried to access from servers in Europe for some days it had been almost impossible. Now, everything seems to be settled at best performance ever! Well done.

    Ok I bet I can give you some suggestions that will fix your problem.


    Not more of it but just use it better.

    First create a Memory drive on your system and run all these files from that drive. Also move your /tmp folder to ram. Make sure any php your using is buffering the output.

    A servers hard drive is the slowest thing in a server. Don’t through more harddrives at the problem just avoid the problem. Apache 2.2 has Memory Cache for commonly called pages and it can triple a servers speed by making sure everything you use is always available in ram.

    Next How you call the pings

    don’t let the other sites poor performance reflect upon you. My search is partnered over a dozen other search engines and if one of those sites takes longer than a second to open (and I open them all at the same time) then they just don’t get included in the results. Never let your visitors get punished by your partners because they won’t understand its them not you.

    It’s still getting some crazy spikes which are slowing it down, I’ll keep working on it.

    Good to hear ping-o-matic is getting an upgrade guys! I take it posting in WordPress will be much quicker from here on?

    Looks MUCH Better!

    Now, if you turned on compression, and made that front page explicitly cacheable…..

    Looking at that massive drop, you’d have to assume it is going to be a raging success unless something untoward happens.
