Sloooooooooowwwww

Postby Mike » Fri, Feb 09 2007, 01:52 PM

The day before yesterday our site was running really slow. There were some general internet problems (many DOS attacks) that may have been the problem, but today we are running slooow again.

It should get better again. Hopefully soon.

the poop from our hosting service...

The web site itself is running fine. That can be determined by loading the main page of the IKE web site...

The database on the other hand (that runs our forums section), is running on a shared server and THAT server seems to be running rather high in terms of use... they are kicking it up to the administrators to figure out which other people are sucking all of the resources and causing it to run slow for anyone who is on this particular server.

According to them, we don't suck... I mean, we are not sucking all of the resources...

This is one of the things that comes with inexpensive hosting services.... of course, we could go dedicated for either $30 or $79 a month but I don't think Dave would like that...

speed is back to normal around 8pm tonight...

We'll keep watching it and complaining to our hosting service if it happens again...

Thanks!
