    This server is CRAP!!

    ....not really.

    I just spoke to my server company to get the "stats" of my current server to make sure I was correct. Here is what I have and how you guys impacted it on this auction end.

    -dedicated server (only I am on it and we share with no one)
    -2.4ghz dual core operon processor
    -4 gig ram

    That stuff said, the issue we ran into was "max_user_connection" as far as the database errors.... on a "shared" server you are allowed an awesome 48 "hits" per second to the database. On this server since it is dedicated, we have 300 "hits" a second. That's right... You guys were hitting the server with 300 requests a second to trigger those errors. HAHA! no matter what server I get (at least at this company) that is the max you can have.

    Server load! Take a look at the last hour of server load.





    Now that said, I was told a new server will be available around July that I can upgrade to for the same price... Not sure it will help since the "hits" to the server will still be a 300 limit... but when I upgrade to that I will have:
    4 core i7 processor
    12 gog ra,
    and of course still dedicated.. again, not sure that will help in the future, but maybe if it doesn't slow down there won't be as many hits to the server and then saving us from hitting the max connections- but that's just a guess... even the server guy couldn't answer if it would actually prevent it- but it surely won't hurt.

    I guess politely vent your frustrations here.... PS if anyone wants to upgrade me to the next server level... I will gladly take $30 a month from you to get us to the next level which would be a 6 core processor. :-p

    forget 30 a month, how much do you want for the site? illl pay cash

    but seriously, how about having seperate sections/end times for the different genus of plants. would at least help the problem in a big way if only a fraction of the auctions are ending at one time

    I am sure after everyone gets over their initial frustrations, they will remember what a great service this forum is for the community. And how much they really appreciate you making it available.

    So I would like to say thank you. It was fun.

    When I bought it many years ago I paid double digit thousands.... Make me an offer above that and you just might take it.

    At least it didn't crash hard like the server did 3-4 years ago. We had to wait several days before the site was even up and running again.

    Any way thanks again for hosting the auction once more.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
