Slow Site No More / Instant Messenger

Old site died, wasn't salvageable, here's a maintained phpBB3 forum. Post about it here.

Slow Site No More / Instant Messenger

Postby xenofears » Thu Apr 14, 2011 12:04 pm

The Instant Messenger is triggering some pretty massive memory leaks in Apache and making the site go veeery slow sometimes, so I've temporarily disabled it. There should be a big speed boost. But it may take a few hours for everyone to get it out of their cache.

Considering Ratch isn't too fond of it any more even though he asked for it, I am not positive it will be coming back. I am nearly positive he's going to tell me not to waste my energy.

EDIT: The site is bloody BLAZING right now again like it SHOULD.. enjoy, I sure am!

PS: Chat should be usable again too. Please try it out folks. It may cause some site slowdown if there's a lot of people, but NOT like before, and I can very easily fix it when I get a chance, so don't get dismayed if it happens.

Yeah, MUCH better!

This site has been SUCKING lately! Opening a thread took like five tries. Trying to read PMs, forget it. The IM has been practically useless because there was like a five-minute lapse in between each post. And the chat has been the same way.

I used to really like the chat, but now I don't think anyone goes in there because of how frustrating it is.

How come it USED to work and now it isn't? What has happened?

And will getting rid of the IM make the chat work better? Cuz if it's between chat and IM, I'd take the chat. Although there ARE times that I really like the IM.

But whatever. Since you just got rid of the IM, I've noticed a HUGE improvement.

Chat should work fine now. The server may need periodic restarts as it has a memory leak of it's own, but it's nothing that can't be tweaked to fix, it's much smaller, when I get around to it, but in the meantime go for it.

No, this should speed up the server a TON for good, though it still might need occasional automatic restarts and I will do it when I have the chance, and there are a couple other tweaks for me to implement when I feel up to it and have the time.

This may encourage people to get into group chat too. IMHO IM is kinda fun but detracts from the overall site, and if I don't have the time / current mental capacity to fix the ridiculous lag it's causing, it's most DEFINITELY not worth it.

Site's flying right now like it hasn't in a long time, it's good to have it back.

Yeah, it is TONS better, xeno!! I'll check out the chat later and see if it works. Hopefully getting rid of the IM will do the trick. :thumbup:

Chat's working fine, no lag at all, and no lag for the board either from it.

If and only if it happens, I'll look into tweaking Apache to prevent it. Not going to fix what I'm not positive is broken.

speed trumps convenience. I'd rather have a Ferrari with no options than a fully loaded shitbox.

Thanks Xeno

Sorry for the downtime in the middle of the night, power went out while sleeping and the server didn't start up by itself for some reason when it came back on.
