Forum performance issues

Post by walter »

You might encounter some difficulties with the forum site/main site. Especially when automated queries are made (bots) the current system is unable to cope with the amount of requests and will throw server errors.

I made some changes (throttling requests), hope that'll make it better. Coming July, the server will move.

Thanks to at67, the server will probably move a bit earlier and from then on have improved performance. The move will happen somewhere in the next few weeks and will be announced here, as it will involve a short period in which new posts will not be possible.

The server is now running at the opposite side of the world from where it was! Performance is restored, there may be some last tweaks the coming period. Thanks again to at67 for taking over managing the forum.
