Delete if meant to be a secret, he’s been jet setting for work.

I agree, very disappointing. Best part used to be the anticipation and build up and the fun had in the threads… but to be down for around 6-7 hours on such a big day…and it’s a regular occurrence…been a common theme that big audiences on this site equals crash and if Rolo can’t afford a decent upgrade then I’m sure there will be some that would.


#761

usually we had to go reimers mode after the climax or disappointment.


#762

We do need to move the site from a Commodore 64.

It’s time.

  • Blitz does just enough ad revenue during trade period to pay for the rest of the off-season.
  • Today’s traffic was the equivalent of what Blitz gets for 30 minutes after we bottle it against Carlton, but for about 18 straight hours.
  • So should we scale the server to a capacity that it can serve those 18 hours of traffic and be comprehensively over-served for the remaining 364.75 days a year? Maybe. I know the host we’re on can’t scale back down so I’m hesitant to.
  • Also, last config change I made seemed to correct issues with huge ramps in load. I thought Blitz has been quite stable for awhile. But today’s traffic load exceeds anything we’ve seen in years, even last year’s trade period.
  • Problem today exacerbated by all traffic in one thread. Forum handles a stack of traffic to a number of threads but not all posters on one thread like it was today.
  • I don’t have all the answers ¯\(ツ)

#767

Had a feeling spreading the load across a couple of threads may have helped


#768

just curious -
What were the actual number of users on here today during peak period?
And members vs non-members?
How does that compare to previous great moments in BBlitz?


#769

Whats the cost difference?


#770

Anyway of only letting members on only?
Would that trim numbers back much?


#771

@riolio, you’re alive??!


#772

Thanks for the update @Riolio . I’m worried that blitz might be permanently down if Essendon win a flag though.


#773

Fixed


#774

Not sure, … but I think you gave the answer.

New host that allows you to expand server bandwidth when needed??


#775

I don’t want to ■■■■■ but ■■■ I thought the reason we put up with being the censorship being a ■■■■, sometimes a complete pain in the ■■■■, was because it could handle the traffic.


#776

but that’s not what yachts are built for.
