After reviewing some of our server performance factors, one item that has always been a moderate impact on performance has been increasing lately...
e-mail notification from threads.
On average, our server sends 5,000+ e-mails every day the post count is over 1,000. We've had one day (11/19/2003) where 18,172 e-mails were
sent as a result of new posts on threads where members have selected e-mail notification.
Now this is becoming a performance issue for the server.
Before I decide what to do... I'd like to know how many members rely on the e-mail notification, and how it would impact your "ATS experience" if
the service was removed.
