Server Move Tonight


Recommended Posts

Hi all... it's that time again.  The current server was installed in 2016 and it's time we pack up and move to a newer build.

Because I have some other web projects going on, the power of the new server is significantly increased over the last one, so I'm hoping to get some big performance boosts to the site.  We're talking going from my Encore to a Hellcat in terms of power.  That said, this software is still rather bloated, so there is still an upper limit to how fast it will go no matter how much processor I throw at it.  It will be a fun experiment.

Also... there is 96 gigs worth of data to transfer, so we'll be down a while.  I'll probably kick off the transfer at 5:30 pm my time. 

Please be patient. 

Thanks,

Drew

I've been working on this little by little each day but I think the SQL server tuning is finally there.  I made a change just now and the server is lightning fast... the site seems to be the fastest its ever been.

As of about 5 minutes ago, I got a new high powered search tool installed. Site searches using the box in the upper right should be faster and more Google-like in quality.

It will take a bit for the software to reindex the 20ish years worth of posts here, but as of now it is already 12% done.  There may be a *slight* performance hit while the search indexer is running, but it still seems faster than anything we've been use to for the past 20 years.
