    I have to say that you can only expect that.

    You are running a RaQ 3 which is an AMD K6 300 with a EIDE hard disk and 128MB ram.

    RaQ's don't have a good reputation for MySQL and it performs much better on intel based hardware.

    I was in the exact same situation as you 2 months ago. I was on a RaQ3, same CP, same memory and same HD, the thing then got hacked and I moved onto a custom linux server with cpanel3, whm etc on it.

    [read if you own the server]
    I don't want to get into a slanging match here, but for what you will be paying for that RaQ, you could probably get a server at VDI.

    Take a look here: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...?threadid=6589
    [/read if you own the server]

    basically, what im saying is that RaQ's don't like heavy MySQL usage, you have 128Megs Ram, so what do you expect.

    Sorry to be brutal, just telling you how it is

    I'm sorry, but 80-100 people with 128 megs of ram is insane .

    Apache process + mysql process will take way more than 128 megs of ram with 100 people online.

    I guess your server is over swapping, and thus, slowdown your entire machine.
    Well my site has a lot of virtual includes of the output of certain cgis... At any one time there are 80-100 people on the page with no problem -- it's only been since the upgrade from vb 1.1.4 to vb 2.0 beta 2 that I've had these issues...

    As soon as the 128 ram is used up the swap partition gets used quickly and my error log is filled with entries of not being able to process the cgis and of course this just gets worse and worse unless I take down http for a minute and restart it....

    I have the same problem...

    I also have a Raq3 with 128 megs ram and since upgrading to 2.0 beta 2 I get sporadic load spikes a couple of times a day...

    I've tried tinkering with my mysql settings but I dunno what else to do... I'd get more ram but my ISP likes to rip you off on memory upgrades so I'm holding back on that...

    Let me know if you find a way to eliminate those spikes...

    If you are running Beta 1, upgrade to Beta 2 immediately.

    To get loads that high there has to be a configuration problem. Ours typically run less than .5 with more numbers on them.

    On that RAQ3 machine with 128 megs of Ram. You need to add more RAM. 384 Megs at least. I don't know much about RAQs but if they use standard DIMM's you can probably fron 384 Megs of PC-133 RAM for around $100 US. You can get PC-150 RAM for about $150 US.

    What do your MySQL processes look like? Check to see if you have any locked queries as these will hold things up and cause the load to increase. Go into PHPMyAdmin if you have it installed and click on "Show Processes" on the home page. Show the screenshots here.

    Well even after the upgrade to beta 2 my server emailed me the following later that day...

    Over the past fifteen minutes, the CPU has been heavily loaded.

    1 minute load average: 86.18
    5 minute load average: 85.47
    15 minute load average: 56.19

    With the testing I have done, if I shut down the site running vb the load times drop almost instantly. I don't recall this problem with version 1.15. Is there a way to go back?

    Shell Monitoring commands (some require additional packages)

    top Load average monitoring
    uptime Uptime and load averages
    free free memory
    ps -elf|more show all processes pass to more
    ps -el|grep httpd show all apache processes
    ps -el|grep mysqld show all mysql processes
    mysqladmin -u user -p status mysql status
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd status apache status

    The load seems a little high even without vB - it shouldn't really ever get above 1 (unless it is dual-CPU). What other stuff do you have running?

    RaQ3 with 128 meg ram, 6 other sites but all very small... Going to do beta 2 upgrade now and see if that helps...

    And age of the server affects a little also.

    both of you should post your server specs, cpu, ram etc as it all depends on what kind server you're on and what other sites you have on it besides vB

    i.e. my load is below 0.18 at times and i have up to 100 - 140 users on - but i am on a dual p3 866, 512mb
