  • Maxing our RAM- what are we doing wrong?

    Please forgive me- this is a very serious problem, and I don't know whether to ask here or in hosting so I am asking both places hoping for some insights.


    Our site has up to 300 users online at once. 2700 members. 140m database, 9G of files. We are running VB 1.12 patch one, and using several mods, including Evo Chat Box. We recently switched to dedicated hosting at HostAtom.net. The server has very good space, good bandwidth, but only 768 RAM. With everyone on at once, we spiked the server a few times and went down. We went up to 1024 but still spiked it. BTW the site is www.Hobby-Machinist.com

    I took down the chat box and things calmed.

    My question is this- should that many users at once max out the RAM?
    What kind of RAM do you guys use for comparable sites on VBulletin?
    Anyone else had this problem?

    I also had to restrict Guest access to bring down the memory drain. This is no fun. I would like to find out if this is normal on dedicated hosting. 1024 costs $60 month for a small hobby site- is this usual?

    Thanks,

    What your describing sounds more like a vps than a dedicated server....What you need to find out is what cpu share is...

      Yeah. He's on a VPS.

      He and the host had an entertaining exchange this morning.

      Personally, I blame the chatbox.
