Unfortunately it seems this site has been sluggish all day yesterday and today while I was browsing the forums and marketplace.. Numerous times I received timed out errors and had to wait a few minutes to hit refresh...? :sad:
I don't know anything about your configuration, but perhaps I can give you a piece of advice if your tables are all MyIsam...
I had some problems some time ago even though Apache and MySQL were optimized, and I had them fixed this way :
- Changing some tables (ibf_core_item_markers and ibf_core_item_markers_storage ) from MyIsam to Innodb.
- Having the ibf_sessions table placed in MEMORY.
I was told this should be done to make things work better and it worked for me. :smile:
If I had 10 members online at once, my dual-core VPS would hit a load of 2-3. After making these DB changes, the loads are around 0.5 to 0.7 with 10 members online.
