Topic: Forum performance issues, Kinda urgent
Since this forum hit the 100,000 post mark I have noticed a remarkable performance degredation.
Often taking over a minuite to view a post and sometimes not getting in at all.
Today I got a database error with too many connections.
It seems that this forum is becoming more and more popular and something needs to be done to sort this out before it becomes a major issue.
I'm not suggesting that the 100,000 posts itself is causing the problem I'm merely offering this as a time scale reference.
If there are issues over hosting costs, bandwidth etc... then I'm sure that you would get offers of help from members if asked.
When your head is hurting from trying to solve a problem, stop standing on it. When you are the right way up you will see the problem differently and you just might find the solution.
