Server downtime

We've been particularly busy the last few days, mostly due to the influx of schoolboy rugby fans.

I'm going to shut the server down shortly for about 10 minutes, this will allow me to make a backup to trial some optimisation techniques.

Cheers,
Moses.

Hi Moses - have noticed this for days - are you sure GAGR hasn't incurred some runaway processes affecting performance? I have no idea what server facility or server strength you are using, but, with the right configuration running vBulletin, you should not have load-related problems with the concurrent user population I see up on the (public) stats. I am in the IT business, I'd be delighted to bounce ideas around (vis Private Messages) if ever you needed some other inputs (not suggesting you do, just an off the cuff offer).

The Grassroots forum has been mental recently. I never go in there due to the chance of stumbling across greasy underage schoolboy e-fights.

Ah you poor thing, it's just not safe for little old ladies (or biased Queenslanders) to walk the Schoolboys threads anymore...

I've disabled access to the forums for anyone not logged in, this should help performance for our members until I can fix the performance.

That would be an unfortunate side effect, two registrations already!

Guests can now read all the forums except schoolboys.

15 new registrations so far...

I'm going to be running some upgrades for the next few hours, things could get weird

Everything seems to be working well now after a pretty major backend change. Please advise if there's any issues. Going to reboot in 5 to make sure everything comes back up

I'll be shutting the server down for 10 minutes around 11am as we are upgrading to a bigger plan
