    Maintenance event - 17/12/2020

    Hi people !

    Following the Clickpix upgrade, we are doing some server work today the 17/12 during the afternoon (GMT)

    This should be a pretty short event, but we might come up and down during the load up of the server with people connecting to it.

    Once the event is finished, we will post an update for it here.

    Thank you for your patience

    Cheers

    'My reps all take a lickin' but keep on ticking!' Bravo! A Rolex owner is never late. Even if he is late, he is still not late. RWI . Such a lovely place....... This could be Heaven or this could be Hell. We are all just prisoners here, of our own device. Relax, we are programmed to receive. You can check-out any time you like. But you can never leave....

        Update :

        As expected we are coming up & down for testing purposes.

        Bear with us while we adjust some setting to troubleshoot some of the forum sluggishness you experience sometimes

            You must have been caught in the middle of a server change, I just tried to send a test PM and it worked, please try again and report back if you are not able to send one, thanks a lot !

                  Update :

                  This maintenance event is considered to be done, you shouldn't get any more maintenance message or server coming down until further notice here.

                  To give a bit more detail, this maintenance purpose was to test a different type of server with different hardware, we tried 3 different configuration in this short laps of time, which showed us that we are now able to move and switch server without any data loss and in a matter of minutes.

                  We are now pretty certain that the sluggishness felt in some busy section of the forum and the various error message that come with them are the result of this badly optimized version of Vbulletin.

                  Starting an update process will be our next steps in the upcoming months.

                  For the technically minded : we tested a 8 CPU, then 16 CPU, then 32 CPU with in the end up to 192 Gb of RAM (this is for only one of our server !)

                  Nothing hardware wise that we threw at Vbulletin made a difference, it all come down on how SQL queries are written in this particular version of the software.

                  We did end up with a better configuration and will now watch to see how the forum behave on issue that were not visible to end users but it's unlikely that this will change anything for busy area like Rolex subforum, M2M


                  Thanks to all for your patience and have a happy end of the year

                    Ok, we likely are done for the day. Glaude detailed everything above. Thanks for being patient with all the ups and downs.

                        Very nice Glaude. It always excites me to see the billygoat with a construction hat.

                            Thats because goats worship the devil.
