As you may know, we’ve been slashdotted (http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/09/17/1414255). It seems like the Slashdot effect is much harder to handle than the digg effect. As a temporary solution, I deactivated all PolishLinux feeds, as it seems they were responsible for the high load of MySQL.

As a temporary solution, I deactivated all PolishLinux feeds, as it seems they were responsible for the high load of MySQL (the whole website is cach so the database is used quite seldom normally). I haven’t figured out the actual reason, yet. I’ll keep you informed.

I hope you don't mind too much if I digg you Eye

It's great to be dugg or slashdotted - but it gets worse when the site goes down with it.

Wow.. just wow!

Wow.. just wow! Laughing out loud

Congratulations michuk! It's a great review and made me want to try fvwm-crystal. Apparently geeks around the world love the idea of a flexibility of fvwm combined with the beauty of a crystal for their computer interfaces. Eye

OK, dugg and slashdotted at the same time... I never thought a Crystal review could bring up that much attention. Just hope the performance problems with our server are gone... Looks fine for now, but the RSS engine is still inactive though.

Awesome. Your server seems

Awesome. Your server seems to be holding pretty well overall. You just proved you can be slashdotted and dugg at the same time without completely crushing. Smiling

Congrats!

Yes, I think we did pretty fine with the heavy load in general. We served over 100,000 pages during the last 2 days (over 80GB of data!) and the website is doing accessible all the time. Wordpress cache is not as bas as it seems, I guess Smiling

PS. I put RSS back on (the shorter version with just titlesa and excerpts). It should be now cached like any other type of content. XSS (buggy!) is still deactivated, though.
