Ptah - DKP site and main site load times

Question

Ptah,

 

The DKP site especially, and the main web site to a smaller extent, are taking ages to load.  Any idea what's up with the performance?  It's been more slow than usual since around last Thursday.  Don't know if there's something up with the host or not.  Can you check on this?  Thanks.

Attempting to upload a 5 item dump with 45-ish peeps on it took over 5 minutes before it timed out and error paged me.  I can't do DKP from 11-16 ATM because the site is not playing nice.  Checking via command prompt and doing a /ping on the server, it's not reporting any dropped packets and a time of 27ms, so the server is working okay from what it seems.  Not sure what's causing the slowdown at this point.

After more working on DKP, it seems it's sputtering instead of constant slowdowns.  It'll be okay for 1 upload, then slow/error on the next upload a few minutes later.

Since about 7:15 AM PST, the site seems to have improved remarkedly.  I think they might have reset their server.  From what I've seen, unless it's normal working hours at wherever the host is at, performance goes way downhill.  I tried doing DKP several times this weekend and couldn't deal with the timing out of the page.

This is the problem with being on a shared host.

The problem this morning was the server ran out of memory.

This can be caused by run away apps using up memory by other users.

They won't let me partition the large mysql tables which would help performance either which will solve the timeout issues. They want me to upgrade to a ridiculously expense package.

If I could find a small shared host that doesn't strangle all the resources out of my account I'd love to move the site over to it. Of course I can run my own server no problem, I know how to set it up but it's pretty expense to get setup and the monthly cost is out of my budget.

Thanks for looking into it.  I know what we got will have to do since we won't ask you to shoulder the costs of a more professional server.

I upped the amount of memory the DKP site can use since I'm seeing more out of memory errors which it was failing at around 300mb of memory, however it was set to use up to 350mb before in the php.ini. This leads me to believe the server is running out of memory at these points.

Like for example,

Message: Out of memory (allocated 314048512) (tried to allocate 786432 bytes)

314048512 bytes is 314048.512 kilobytes which is 314.048512 megabytes. It tried to allocate an additional almost 1 megabyte of data and failed. Not even reaching the limit of 350mb before hand. So that's not a configuration problem, that's the server running out of memory.

I'll keep an eye on this and if that's the case, I'll contact Hostgator and see if they can move me to another server. If they won't do that, I'll shop around for another host.

Hostgator at some point this year set a hard cap limit on the shared server accounts to where we can only use a certain amount of memory, which was below the amount we could use before.

I'm trying to lower the amount of memory the dkp site uses right now. If that doesn't work, we'll have to get an account somewhere else that won't limit the account.

Edit: I got the DKP site back up and running for now but I'm still shopping around for another host.

I think I found a new provider. I'm doing some research on them now to make sure I have all the info I need to buy an account there. I have to sign up for a full year though and for that it's going to cost me a little over $100 so I need to wait until I get paid and then I can get it. I'll put a donation link later so folks can donate to cover the cost.

If and when I do get an account and get everything set up, DNS will take probably anywhere from 24 to 48 hours to propagate to DNS servers for everyone's ISP's to make the change.

Ya, the DKP site is unusable as is.  I can get on there maybe once before it starts out of memorying.  Not sure what's using so much memory, but it's frustrating.

 

ATM, DKP is not done for 11-28.

DKP site back open for business. It might need some more work. I'll keep an eye on it.

I SSH'd into the account just now just to get a updated picture of how much we were using after cleaning up a bunch of stuff. We're running as lean as we can get and this is what we're at.

Mem:  32805188k total, 30677396k used,  2127792k free

All that in megabytes

Mem: 32805.188mb total, 30677.396mb used, 2127.792mb free

All that in gigabytes

Mem: 32.805188gb total, 30.677396gb used, 2.127792 free

Now this is during non peak hours and we barely have any free memory left. I bet we're running out of memory towards peak and we're swapping the entire time just to get by which makes performance really crappy when we start swapping. I'm curious but I'll keep an eye on it tonight to see what it looks like during peak traffic.

I'll be moving the site over to a new provider here soonish. We'll be going with Amazon AWS as our new provider which will give me quite a bit more control over resources than with our current terrible provider. I'll be working on this probably after Christmas. I'll keep everyone updated.

I'll be getting to this soon. I've been sick with the flu for the past week so as soon as I can function again I'll work on getting everything set up.

I logged into the admin panel a couple days ago and I was greeted by something I was hoping we could avoid.

You can see for yourself on the attached screenshot on the right side on the admin panel for the forums.

The company who makes our forums found out I was using the same license for our forums that I had been using for years on my other site and is attached to that domain.

So now they want me to pay for another license. You can see the self hosted package prices at https://invisioncommunity.com/buy/self-hosted

We have the forums + gallery + pages package which comes out to $375. Renewals are $50 every 6 months after that to keep support and have access to updates and so forth.

Since I'm feeling better I'll be working on getting everything set up with Amazon this week and once I get us moved over, I'll start taking donations to get us a new license.

Let us know what we need to do if anything, Ptah.   Thanks for managing the website!

Chromium, my man. How does Opera run on it in now? I tried it a couple years ago but was having serious issues. Might need to revisit. 

Do we need the gallery? All the shitposting happens in discord now so maybe we can save some change there.

Chromium works well for me. I mainly chose it because it remembers my ctrl f searches unlike some of the other browsers which is important when I'm working on allakhazam.

I'm thinking we don't need the gallery either. No one even uses it anyways.

I'm working on this today. I have everything set up. I'm now uploading everything and setting up databases to make sure everything works like it should.

Once everything checks out ok, I'll set a date to move over to the new host.
