    Thumbs Down www.skadi.net & Hosted Sites

    One of our servers is currently down. This will affect www.skadi.net, hosting.skadi.net, as well as some dozens of domains that are hosted on the aforementioned server. We are investigating the issue and will keep you updated.

    Traffic has been forwarded to Skadi Forum in the meantime. We had to switch off some software addenda on the Forum Home, as, with the additional traffic, all the bad-written code and additional database queries kept on killing the server.

    A friend of mine got this side/message when he wanted to go online at Skadi as usual, can this be somehow related to a server problem or did he made a mistake by himself?

    He said he just tried to get normal access as a normal member and came to this:

    When did this happen? Must have been some hours ago?

    He shall refresh and should be forwarded. Alternatively, he shall go to http://forums.skadi.net/ instead of http://www.forums.skadi.net/.

    I stopped forwarding the traffic. A vB 3 board on a dual Xeon can't handle more than 300-400 concurrent users ... and definitely not a hacked one. It kept on killing the machine.

    It gave me a good impression of what will happen in about 3-6 months, however, if this forum keeps growing at this rate ... we'd need at least two SCSI dual CPU machines with 2 GB RAM each then, one for mySQL (the database), one for the rest (primarily Apache, the webserver). Goes for a shabby US$8,000 per year...

    Seems to be out-of-range. I'll think about solutions. Suggestions welcome.

    Disable avatar, signature and image viewing for guests.

    Yesterday I was browsing Skadi with 56K and it is completely non-functional. Some pages took 5 minutes to load completely. After disabling avatars and signatures it worked fine so I guess it might decrease the traffic a lot.

    Guests can't view attachments. Some of the avatars and signatures are quite large, and some people are breaking the rule in regard to only one image per signature. I agree turning them off for guests would be a good idea.

    But, if images are hosted here -- Skadi -- guests shouldn't be allowed to see them.

    Technically not possible.

    232 Guests within 15 minutes (!) -- this killed the machine. And it's not spiders. I have no clue where they come from, because I stopped forwarding already yesterday from www.skadi.net and the Topsites.

    I now switched off Guest access temporarily to keep the Forum and the other sites going.
