The database was getting a bit... uh... stressed. I took the server down brielf to run some quick maintenance and clean-up routines on the tables. The performance should improve somewhat. However, we're still having a massive day... nearly 4,000 posts, and on our way to 200,000 page views. (SIDE NOTE: Our new DeepMetrix reporting service only tracks content pages now, so that's 200,000 actual viewthread/forum/today pages... which is huge.)

That was as quick and easy a fix as a Diebold machine overhauling a vote count!

Running way better now since that downtime. I'm curious to see the reports of volume we've had here over the past 2 days or so. We must have had tremendous numbers from like 8PM all through the night.

SO, stupid question here.

Would eliminating stuff like the smileys help with overhead??

Chat logs...

As soon as server went down... I said:

"Probably SO cleaning up a bit..."

I win!

Running much much better.
So we're going to get close to 1,000,000 posts soon.

There's a thread were we were all adding our predictions for the millionth, I picked Nov 10. I bet I will be close!

Great, with all this talk of SO cleaning tables, I am never going to be able to get this image of his avatar character working as a busboy out of my head!
One good thing did come of it. Assuming the problem was with my computer I chose to re-start it for the first time in about a month. It probably needed it.

The little records at the bottom of the page are now the first things I look at on ATS. Amazing. Thanks for keeping us running.
