    Your 1st post is set to moderation, due to having a lot of spamming-problems.

    Smart. That is what I would call a "back-to-basics" solution to the problem.

    if you experience a slow performance of the page:
    1. Frontend 2 is offline - a replacement is installed - waiting for chompy to change the DNS
    2. we hit the max. Transfer-rate of Frontent1 (100Mbit) - atm we can't deliver faster, asap frontend 2 will be online, this should settle itself, at least for a bit

    sorry for any inconvenience caused :/

    sorry for the unplanned offline time.
    I found a timeslot on which i was able to upgrade the hdds.

    so now we got another ~400GB of HDD space.
    If we also fill this one ... we have some serious problems, since then we need a bigger server ^^'

    Also the traffic is rising since march15. Not sure what exactly happened there, but we doubled the traffic overnight (if you will)
    Just a bit more and we also need another frontend-server to handle all the traffic >.<

    Knowing the problem is half the battle (to quote GI Joe American Hero, sry but my kids used to love that show). Don't let Chomps sit on his haunches, you guys keep him motivated to the upgrades. Thx as always for all your hard efforts in keeping this forum afloat.

    frontend 1 (which happend to be the mail-server) has some serious HDD problems.
    We are not able to send out any mails atm - so it's now disabled for new registrations.
    Users still waiting for activation email: Please contact me via mail: c00lzero@akiba-online.com - i will activate your account asap.

    You can experience a slow loading of the site, when you are loading cached data from this frontend.
    i've contacted chompy to contact the DC and request a HDD-Replacement.

    frontend one is working normal now.
    Mails are still offline - we first need to find a suitable hosting for this one.

    what a nice start into the new year.
    A complete server-crash forced a complete brakedown of the akiba-network :/
    Sorry for that.
    it was the first really large crash since ~550 days - so I think this is somehow acceptable :)
    (Offline-Time was around 2 hours)

    But, we are now back online and we hope, that we won't have that many problems in 2017!

    Happy new Year.

    P.S. degraded performance should last the next view minutes, until db-, frontend- and backend-caches are re-poppulated.

    Happy New Year, indeed! Maybe it can be seen as a good omen? The only issue this year at all? :hmm:

    Hi there,

    i've upgraded the backend-servers.
    If there are some strange problems, please report this to me.

    there will also be a planned downtime from about ~15min in order to resync the clusters.
    ETA: on the night from Saturday to Sunday CET

    added another php node.
    Hopefully this will ease the 504 errors due to
    * no ram left
    * not enough spare-server-processes left
    * s.th. i still don't know.
