So the other night I changed the database stor location on this server to some faster SAS drives as a test for future expandability measures. I did this to see if the load from the backups could be lessened overall and also to help speed up database reads and writes.

It seems to be fine. Page load times are about the same as expected but the data from the database writes seems to be allot quicker. Where it helps the most is when posting in the forums, news, reviews and so on. Most reads are cached in memory so I was not expecting much there but I am noticing quicker backups and the web server seems to be handling requests faster too

Well post here and let us know of you see improvements and or if you notice any problems. Thank you - JaYH - Tweaked - GogGoneRuff

cheers for all the hard work as always tweaked, i have noticed a big improvement again today.. I can't wait till i get the new site up, it will take so much load of the server and everyone's experience will be so much better, especially on ipad, iphone, android tablets etc. im so excited, just wish i had some more money to get the logo done and other things. the paypal is dry right now and hence the new donations topic.

I don't know why but tonight, the site is loading uber fast. It's like lightning.. I have a brand new pc, removed all my cache and its still fast on just about every page.. Some of the badly coded pages (cough cough) are a little slow still, but we all know who's fault that is. All of those late nights coding to try and please the masses. hahaha

Anyway, thumbs up on whatever config you have tweaked. I guess that's why your called tweaked huh.. cheers mate, i hope the new site comes up good and our members enjoy our latest adventure! :0

Nice! Just think when the server has faster ram and MB runs at the higher rates with full bus bandwidth and top that off with the new 360-hq design. Ir will be more like the speed of light! Razz

and then migrating to 5.5 sql database will help the database keep up with the rest of the server lol

I'm excited and nervous.. lol.. The last month, the site has finally brought in a small amount of cash so i can put it towards the bills and design costs. God knows there's alot of them hahah..

I just hope it all goes to plan and we don't lose all of our incoming links. I am changing the site alot, but will do my best to redirect any old areas to the new ones. talk to you on skype tweaked.


cheers,


hobbs

Allot of the URL's may change I suppose. Sounds wise to redirect the old ones as much as possible.

Sounds like there will be much testing before going into production with the new 360-hq. Just don't rush it, take the time needed.

I am glad I am not rushing the cloud services Tweakedhosting will soon be rolling out because the final product will be all tweaked and automated, the way tweakedhosting is supposed to be. Man it's the biggest job I have ever took on. I just hope people jump on bore or yikes! lol
