Downtime Tonight

Recommended Posts

We've obviously had a bit of a mare tonight. Looks like sudden increases in load are killing our web services. Server itself been up all night but Apache refusing to play nice.

Fucking helicopters.

Anyway, I'm going to get a geek to look at it, this keeps happening when we get busy and it's a shite state of affairs.

Over and out.

Invest in air freshener and umbrellas because shit is going to fly next week when we cuff Ayr.

Going the helicopter angle when swearing about Apache. Good call. The other option would be a bit too Malky Mackay.

Sounds like you need more and/or faster memory for the service (not the server). You should profile the server for 24 hours  and you'll find the bottleneck (php). In an ideal world you'd re-write p&b in .net core. ;]

I'm testing out some new settings on Apache. Things may get worse before they get better but let's see.

A second Saturday in a row without a decent platform to rant about the failings of Ayr United doesn't bear thinking about tbh

Noticed the downtime coincided with Falkirk losing to us last Tuesday. Then it crashed on Saturday after a rare win for them. As a computer expert, my advice to Div would be to ban all Falkirk supporters.

There are still mentalists out there that think I deliberately crash the forum when St.Mirren lose :lol:

The reality is that the web server has been crashing on heavy loads. I've thrown memory and processing power at it and tweaked performance but unfortunately I've no tools to simulate heavy loads so I don't know if the problem is resolved until the next time it happens.

When we do have a heavy load and the services stall then there is then the problem grows as more and more users try and get on and so as soon as services restart they crash again.

It's a strange one as we didn't really have many issues at all throughout 2017 and then in the last few days we've had quite a few issues. All that's happened in between is us applying regular operating system updates but we do that regularly anyway.

As ever I'll keep tweaking until we get it right.

Couldn't believe the filth I was reading there. Thought we'd stumbled across Div's Grindr profile.

Already had a few wobbles but since I'm watching it closely I've caught them reasonably quickly.

Bear with me!

This down time leading to some dodgy swipe choices on tinder to pass time.

Fix it quick!

Never fear, we made some progress last night, despite the downtime.
