DailyPaul Maintenance 8/19-22Submitted by NCMarc on Sun, 08/22/2010 - 11:43
Just a fyi, we've been doing some maintenance this weekend on Daily Paul. If you see the site running slow or not responding, it's not a hacker! :)
We have been gearing up for more traffic and we have a lot of data here to move around. We also had an issue with our NAS on Friday & Saturday we had to fix.
Everything should be pretty smooth right now. We're transitioning over to a dedicated MySQL server very soon.
For you technofiles: DP currently runs on a custom built 2U Server, Dual Quad Core Intel 2.5Ghz processors (8 cores total) with 32GB Ram, 2TB of Hard Drive Space on an Adaptec 5805 RAID Adapter. We have a new server, a Dual Quad Core 2.3Ghz Machine with 4TB HD Space and 16GB RAM that will be our dedicated MySQL server. All this sits behind a high-powered firewall.
We are on Dual 100mbit Fiber Rings connected directly to 2 different carrier POPs (less than 100 feet away).
