    yeah it was fine. I was upgrading to vb 2.0 alpha today I think it totally ripped apart the servers resources, and I ended up deleting everything and tring again ( since I didn't know VB would do that to the server )

    Im just not going to use the board for a few days heh

          Hey Mafukie,

          Just got a similar letter like urs......... Some how vB2 is using resorces on their servers like craze..... Heres the letter I got......

          ****************
          Dear Turki Al-Ballaa,

          Sorry for the recent trouble that you have been experiencing with your account. Unfortunately, the reason that we had to suspend your account for a bit was because your account is using too many system resources. Please look at this listing of process usage:

          [email protected] [~]# /scripts/userps
          arabiano: 37
          blackgla: 2
          ebonyele: 5
          handicap: 2
          infomed: 3
          japdrama: 3
          jough: 2
          totalfan: 4
          videogam: 4

          As you can see, your site is using more resources than all other sites combined. Your site is using so many system resources that it is degrading the service that we are able to provide to other customers on this machine. It is for this reason that we had no choice but to suspend your site for a short period of time. In fact, we even received a complaint from yourself with regards to the system performance as of late.

          It is quite apparent that you have outgrown your Site5 hosting account. We hate to request that you find a new host, however in this situation we have no other choice.

          We will, of course, give you a refund for any services that you have not used yet. We are extremely sorry to see you leave. Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions. If you like, we would be willing to help you transfer your files to a new host of your choice.

          Thank you for your cooperation. Don't hesitate to let us know if there is anything else that we can do to help you.

          Best Regards,
          Site5 Billing Department

            Did you run the search engine re-index? Did you complete it successfully? If so than you can ask them to re-instate your account as that was a one time thing.

              they did re-instate but I did not do the search engine re-index as it failed so I turned the search off........

              They are going to moniter the site during the week while I look for a new host so I will know how its doing during the next few days.....

                Just got this from my host.

                *********
                It was using 60 processes, and we almost couldn't get into the server to suspend the account (that's how bad it was).

                The forums are what is causing the resource usage. We will unsuspended your account, but we would appreciate if you disable the forums for now.

                      What were your average # of users on at a time, and/or pageviews and posts per day when you started having these problems?

                      I'm on site5, too. No problems so far, but I'm worried.

                            Don&#039;t be scared!

                            Hi All,

                            Just to clarify, these sites were not just booted as soon as we saw a high process count. We monitor the systems constantly and watch process counts and system load. We are well aware that sites do receive traffic surges, DoS attacks and the like and we understand completely.

                            There are a handful of accounts on our servers who are constantly using more resources than everyone else. Of course, this is also to be expected and we usually don't take any action. However, when it gets to be so bad that an account is continually degrading service to other customers on the system, we will suspend an account and request that the webmaster locate a new host, or make an attempt to correct the problem.

                            Our aim here is not to "give you the boot" and forget about you . We will always *try* to keep your site up for a week to ten days while you locate a more suitable host (of course, in some cases it's so bad that we aren't even able to do this much). Heck, we'll even help you move your database and files to your new server. We just want to ensure that we are able to provide the level of service that our customers have come to expect from us.

                            Of course, this is not commonplace. Over the past three years, we have only had to request that about a half-a-dozen customers transfer their site, and only in the most extreme cases will we resort to this.

                            So.. should you be worried? Probably not. As you already know, forums are a very resource-intensive system, and can attract quite a few people. However, they would have to be pretty popular in order to seriously degrade the performance of our servers. We have hosted vBulletin forums with over six thousand members, and had little or no problems.

                            As always, you can email me personally if you have any questions regarding your account. My address is [email protected]

                            Thanks for your time!

                            Regards,

                                It looks like you're at Catalog.com. Do you have a dedicated server there?
