    Update - Server lags - Reindexing the search system

    Hi all,

    We are currently running a re-indexing task for the Sphinx search system, this will and is currently generating random lag spikes.

    This task should last for a few hours and will generate ups & down.

    If you encounter a lag while posting a message, please be sure to copy the content of the message and refreshing the page to see if it posted correctly before hitting multiple time the post button.

    Sorry for the inconvenience


    UPDATE :

    MAINTENANCE NOTICE :

    To try to complete, again, the re-work of the search system, we will be running some maintenance task and re-indexing of the search content tomorrow during the day. The forum will be online most of the day, but if at one point you notice the forum going down, there's no worries to have, it's just the normal course of the maintenance event.

    Some slow moments could also happen during that day if the forum don't come to a full stop.

        We don't disclose too much informations about our hardware, but there are multiple servers, specialized for each of our needs, they all run together. But this forum, Vbulletin and the amount of traffic we have, require a very beefy configuration

                      You will notice some ups and downs throughout the day. We should not be down for any significant time however, if you are making a big post please copy it before posting in case your post is lost.
                      We are trying to improve our search system and our caching system so that we can get even more speed from the server and a bug or two that is causing us some issues.
                      Thanks for understanding.

                          Ok, just did a fresh install of sphinx. Changing our search option to sphinx doesnt bring us down so that is great! Now.. we have to rebuild our index again. Another slow day. Sorry everyone.
