Hey Clappers


Ive made some configuration changes to the server over the last week which has lowered the CPU & Memory usage.


Also added some hard limits on the chat SQL Commands that wont allow chat to kill the server in a Memory/CPU overload.


As i cant always be here, I am asking that this thread be used as a Outage Tracker. If you receive an Error/Cant Access Chat etc, That you please post a reply here with time, what you were doing prior to the error, the TIME (And Timezone if not AEDST) and any errors thrown/messages


Once Again Thanks Guys for your patience, we seem to be at a stable level now, and this thread will help keep that by allowing me to see what causes overloads.

It's been happening a bit here too, when I cant blame my connection (No uploading or downloading), and normally it's 30 seconds and seems to buffer the messages. Lately it's been a little longer and drops messages typed.

When the chat is working it seems way faster than the last couple of months, so if you can nail down the cause of the pauses it would be great.

10:33 pm today, was typing a message in Chat and Nek Minnut I was logged out of ACL (Back at the login page)
Tried to login but it said I had to wait 2 seconds.
Tried again and it said wrong password (was correct password as its saved for this site)
Tried again and logged back in OK.

Chat User Limits are not a server side thing. That's Ryan. ACL has always had a 30 person limit thou so in not sure much will change.

Is the forum having issues at the moment

Strange things going on like threads not appering when created and then when finally created it cannot be accessed

Also issues with uploading images

Anyone else having these issues

I've tried to access a couple of threads earlier today and have been met with a blank screen. Come to think of it, both of them were yours Eddy. I haven't experienced it with other threads so far.
