Yes, I've had to put the user choke on, it'll prevent the server from falling over.

You can blame it on D+. :)

No, I've taken it off now, made some other changes, but we cannot make any significant remedies for five or six weeks due to physical space at our server host.

This is true, i was wondering myself... i suspect it was when Rolf was doing his best to lighten the load on the server....maybe he turned it off.

the forum still seems to be slow at peak times still, i was struggling earlier.

I have turned off the list of who's online at the bottom of the index page (it still shows the stats though), as it is very server intensive, if you want to see who's around, then go to the quick links and who's online, as it will only load for those who request it specifically.

We are looking at a second server, but cannot see that it will be installed for a few weeks yet due to our host moving premises. :) So we may well have to suffer a little up until that date (perhaps with a few more server saving measures), at least it is only periodic slowdowns at the moment. :)

Any chance of trying to channel the majority of the recent heavy use traffic one way or the other at all ??

i must say the last few weeks has seen a massive increase in traffic (so it seems) hopefully everthing will be smoother later(after improvements:) )

May I suggest having things like Uploaded Images and Avatars being turned off or reduced temporarly as you wait for the server hosts to move house and get a new server installed? That should reduce the load on the servers as it'll be clearing the bandwidth used by all the images downloading every time someone opens a thread...

Just a suggestion of course... :D

As far as I've been led to believe, it isn't bandwidth which is the problem, it is queries on the SQL database which is causing these slowdowns, the images are being called from the hard drive direct. We can have 3000 guests online who are all calling up images, but as soon as we get to three or four hundred members, the load increases.

Not too long to wait, only until the end of May and it will all be sorted. :)
