"high demand on server" ( 20:34:09 MonApr 21 2003 )

The users on our board have been increasingly getting booted to the "we are currently experiencing high demand on this server" page.

This has happened to me several times today and when it happens I lose whatever reply I was posting (unless I had the foresight to copy it first).

I'm taking a poll on our board, but this seems to be happening frequently, one member said it had happened to her 6 times already today.

Thoughts? Any way to move to a less crowded server? Any plans to add servers?

Thanks!

Re: "high demand on server" ( 20:49:13 MonApr 21 2003 )

I'm getting lots of replies to my post about this problem on "my" board.

"GMT +/- 7:00 pm TO 8:30 pm.

It kept happening, almost every time I clicked a link...very annoying"

"It happened to me about 7 times, just after lunch EST."

Any solutions?

I'm not exactly sure what was causing this problem, but it seems to have been fixed now. However, I can tell you that it was nothing to do with server capacity. None of our servers are crowded and we always purchase new servers ahead of time, to keep abreast of expansion needs. :smile:

How long ago was that, chickenlady? It's only been fixed in the last half hour or so. :smile:

Actually there will always be "server busy" messages on the odd occasion - it's not as though they will be gone for ever and never happen again, becuase they will happen with peak loads. So please, we don't need to know every time someones gets one - it's only if they are persistent, like has been happening the last couple of days, that it becomes of concern - and we will be aware of it as much as you are, because we are here virtually around the clock. :smile:

The thing is, as I explained elsewhere, if you get one and immediately try again, chances are it will happen again, especially if everyone does the same!

I personally haven't had one since the problem (whatever it was) was fixed. I have asked BbBoy to let me know what was causing it and will let you guys know when I know. :smile:

Re: "high demand on server" ( 23:30:24 MonApr 21 2003 )

It actually doesn't matter how many users there are on an individual board - it's the amount of activity on the server itself. If the server receives xxx requests all in the same instant, then it can't handle more than a certain number. In that case, it rejects the ones it can't handle and gives the users that message.

Though I haven't heard directly from BbBoy today, the recent significant drop in those messages led me to believe that he had made some sort of adjustment - though what that was, I don't know yet - maybe he didn't even make an adjustment.

As I've mentioned elsewhere, there is still one element at play in all this and that is the deleted free boards - anyone trying to access them will initiate a server request each time they do so and this being a holiday weekend, user activity is high.

For the moment, it seems things are pretty much improved, with just the odd message, so we'll just keep our fingers crossed that the situation doesn't deteriorate again. :smile:

Please don't post here if you get one isolated "server busy" message. As explained above, it's inevitable that this will happen occasionally. If you are getting them constantly, then that is a different matter altogether and we DO want to hear about it.

Also, if you do get one, be prepared to wait, at least for one minute, as the message suggests, otherwise you may be doing more harm than good. :smile:
