    Server Management Tweaking Request- Monster Vbulletin Forum

    Hi all,

    Need someone to tweak/manage a monster vbulletin forum for us...

    I almost worked with everyone overhere.. last month we had the server problem ..Now moved to a monster server so waiting for much higher performance...

    Unfortunately at peak times load is around 2-3 but , forum seems to be not responding sometimes..

    Server details:

    TigerTown 2.ghz quad core quad cpu, 16 gb ram, scsi disk, cpanel, RHE 4.0....

    Expecting a professional who has real experience with very big high traffic vb forums. MUST give reference via pm or email..

    Contact via yahoo msg, msn or private message

    Budget: max 200.

    bacanak,
    If I remember you were going to move to a quad quad core machine? If that is correct a load of 2-3 is nothing. (8-12 really is nothing also). Load average is not a good way to gauge your resource usage, you need to look at the cpu/memory usage. I know you said it was too expensive, but my offer for that cluster is still on the table if you are interested. Like I said I was going to guarantee uptime and optimize your boards code. Our clients combined have over a 100 million posts now, and we manage a combined amount of 25,000 users online (counted at the 15minute average of vbulletin). All are experiencing 100% uptime.

    Steven,

    We have worked for a very long time before. You are one of the best specialists over here. Yes i switched to quad core quad cpu tigertown. Price was so attractive. Nowadays my budget is really tight otherwise i would really accept your offer. If i will move to a cluster solution in the future it will be only with your team.


    But, I truly believe that this server will be enough for a while.

    I contacted with another tech in the mean time.

    Cheers
