What a freaking nightmare to sort this out. Still not 100% sure what the issue is, hosting provider is not particularly communicative.

I've setup CloudFlare for our site so you might experience some interruption while things propagate around the world. It's supposed to help with speed (doubling it) and preventing load attacks. We shall see.

We're still having spikes so I've made the executive decision to upgrade our plan to a better server that will be better able to handle the load as we're growing fast apparently.

There might be some interruption of service while we transition.

Sorry for the inconvenience but it will be worth it!

Thanks

I hate it when servers run out of disk space... :mad:

I'm going on a major purging to clean things up so we have some breathing room

Sorry for the hiccups folks, growing pains

seems to be slightly better at loading pages and post to messages (still around 5-10 seconds), but easily 20-30 seconds to open the 'Alerts' pulldown.

I've implemented a new caching system that should help but the slowdown was due to a weekly backup of the system that takes a while to complete. Once it's done the system returns to normal performance. Backups happen on a weekly basis at 2AM EST so expect a few hours of slowdown while it finishes.
