    Okay guys my URL is in my profile. I do not post my URL because I am not a very good designer and my users are everywhere and I ussually end up looking stupid.

    We tried the switch to the VB a few weeks ago. First we started with a second server for the MySql. After zooming up to 941 concurrent online we crashed (that only took a few hours), so we switched the MySql to the same server (the more powerful one) and crashed again (that only took about 15 minutes). We had the config file set to "don't use persistent connections", my server guy thinks setting it to "use persistent connections will help". He ran tests and said the MySql server was not the problem and said the number of quires were well within their limits of the MySql server (in fact the load on this server was low).

    We ended up switching back to our UBB and it handled the traffic no problem that night. However some nights we have problems with the UBB. Seems with our current setup with the UBB we can handle about 1200-1300 concurrent. But it hangs and crashes after that.

    What do I need to do to make this work? Our traffic will slow (have already started to slow some) in a few weeks. So we will not have problems for awhile until next season. Thus, I have about 6 months to find a solution. So from those (Dave Bott) that have had over 1,000 concurrent what do I need to do to get this work? Switching off the search function is not an option. With over 1500 daily active topics that would be a disaster. Will changing to persistent connections be the answer? Should I wait until Version 3? Do I need to wait for a Cybase version of the Vb. Is it possible with the Vb? Please list all your best optimization tips.

    The following thread has me worried:

    well you need your servers tweaked some more .... http://disboards.com i installed and tweaked their php and mysql settings to handle 1200+ users on a single dual p3 933 server with 1.5 gb ram and 2 x scsi disks

    you need to head over over to server configuration forum so i can work my magic

    Essentially concurrent users in a 15 minute period.

    Their server info:



    Note the part about 2 servers: running one for each specific program greatly helps performance.
    are they running any kind of accelerator software?

    server config forum question i suppose http://vbulletin.com/forum/forumdisp...?s=&forumid=14

    but generally the web server does more work for email, web serving, and other linux processes but the mysql database can do more work too.. especially if you're like me and are paranoid and do automated cronjob backups of 1.8GB worth of databases every 12 hrs!

    Why are you upgrading to vB, as UBB is handling so many users?

    BTW I just moved from UBB to vB , and am just an end user myself.
    probably because ubb eats too much bandwidth like most flat file forums

    Boss,

    Could you let us know the URL for your forum. This would *really* help us to judge the sort of hardware that you would be looking, by letting us look at the posting habits of your users, etc.

    Thanks!

    John

    Okay this question might best be for Ed or David Bott, but anybody can answer. I can get a second server (but not as suped up as our current one). My question is which one will be doing the most work? The one for the MySql or the one doing the webserving? Do I use the 4 Gig Dual processor with the raid for the web server or the MySql server?

    I'd really like to see a UBB forum that can handle 1000 concurrent users. What's the URL to your board?
