Im using a Dedicated server from FDCServers and have used this server for nearly 3 months now.Few days ago the server stated to slowdown and stated to get Freeze up when sites are having bit high traffic.Now the server is so unstable and so so slow.My server CUU usage is like (50-70%) in peak server load is like 10-15 (2 CPU) .And i also need to mention that im hosting a videos streaming site on this server as the main site and pulls nearly 25-30TB from a 100Mbps line per month.Can someone tell me what is the reson for this slow down.My server specs are
Dual Core Intel E5200
2 x 1.5TB HDD (no RAID)
100 Mbps unlimited
currently host 300GB of data
i also think its over use of disks but the RAID solution cost so much even RAID 1 will cost me 500$ because of 2 x 1.5 TB drivers.So i need to pay for two HDD's and for a RAID card.and i also need to mention that im only paying 150$ per month for this server so 500$ is lot for me.
is the "Six Core AMD Phenom II X6 Thuban" is a good option because its bit cheap and i just need to pay neatly 200$ for that one.
and also now im trying to move maser HDD hosted user account to the slave HDD to add a new HDD with fresh OS installed.Is it possible to do a such a thing for nearly 300 GB of data.and do i need to backup the mysql data separatly ?
More disk io... streaming doesn't require CPU.. more ram. People suggesting moar cpu! are 100% wrong
The processor the client is using is E5200 processor which is lower end processor . It has nothing to do with streaming , the client is having heavy traffic and the processor E5200 is not capable to handling heavy loads .
im not clear about that becaue it might be the weak STAT HDD which is abused for nearly 3 months or might be the lower end CPU.Give me a clear idea please.and also i have tried to move all master HDD files to the slave HDD which is less used than the master HDD but server is so unstable. to do that.Is it possible to move files from HDD to HDD via SSH.if yes give me the command used in SSH.
The Best option I would suggest is to go for new server with a higher processor such as X3430 or a more costly server E5620 with the Same Amount of RAM and most of your issues will be sorted .
And then you can move the data to a new server . There will be some trouble but once everything is moved you will have some relief.
Also if you prefer to go with the same server you can use the rsync command to move the data from one HDD to the other .
After lots of work i have installed a new HDD to the server with new fresh centos installed.But after moving files to the new HDD the server again went offline.This is like a mess for me now because what i did was useless now.I need to find the actual reason for this problem.70% i think its a clipbucket site with ~9000 videos on it.and also i also need to know that is there a way to retrive Data base files from the old HDD which contains the old OS because i forgot to backup one of my databases because its too much work for a learner (Lots of new SSh comm..).Please can some one help me with the Server part and DB backup problem.
On the fresh OS install the server status are horrible.(total of 300-400 online users and 50-60 doing thing on the sites and others are streaming videos)
Server Load 52.37 (2 cpus)
