lists have been wanky all day, hopefully they're fixed now.. this if for those of you that didnt get this the first time -------- Original Message -------- Subject: [Admin] new weo server up and running.. Date: Mon, 14 May 2001 16:21:26 -0500 From: "Daniel J. Cody" <djc at members.evolt.org> Reply-To: admin at lists.evolt.org To: admin at lists.evolt.org, thesite at lists.evolt.org http://weo.evolt.org its running a snapshot of the code from saturday, the data is about a week old.. it may be a bit slow cus i dont have all the memory in there yet, but its mostly good to go. ifanyoneisinterested, this is a brand new server that we put together, again from contributions(a huge one by bob, yay!). this is probably the fastest box, all around, that i've ever configd.. in keeping with history, we're running some cutting edge software on this box.. linux 2.4.4 with the XFS 1.0 release for starters. XFS really kicks ass(its been getting a lot of attention on slashdot lately) for reasons i wont bore you with here :) also, the linux 2.4.4 kernel is a *ton* faster than the old 2.2 kernels, especially for webserving. once cf5 rolls, i'd like to get a copy of that up there as well since that is supposed to increase performance on linux upto 300%.. 5.4ms seek time drives, shitload of RAM(soon) and a nice fast CPU & mobo all make for a kick ass new webserver :) so, slam it around a bit and try to slow it down.. tomorrow i'll probably be dropping the rest of my RAM in it - so if you notice anything *really* slow, it could be that, but let me know.. if all goes well, i'd like to switch everything over on wednesday night. and finally drop oracular.. so, give it a whirl and lets break it in.. thanks :) .djc. ___________________________________________________ Once I had a little game I like to call back in my brain.
