Server on it's limit, applying new storage policy for Replays
The last weeks were very hard for us. Busy messages with ADU, slow responses in high peak times. Especially the last two Sundays were extremely demotivating.
Sorry for the hiccups, vBAddict is a slave of it's own success.
Beside the processing unit, there is now another limit the server reached yesterday: Disk Storage. "Incompatible Dossier" was a result of this.
I already asked my Hoster about upgrading the server, but they said it's not possible. I cannot order more than four drives, as the space inside the server is limited. And ordering a new one does not solve the problem as the space is the same. It only reduces the headaches a bit by expanding the disk space - with much more costs.
One of the solutions to this I see only by reducing the limits for the storage of Replays.
Right now vBAddict is hosting over two million replays. Replays are deleted after 60 days. I have to reduce this timeframe to 45 days. Replays, which have no views/downloads after 7 days and additionally have low experience earned, will be deleted immediatly.
ATS and Battle Results are not stored on the server, they affect only the size of the database.
First actions reduced the occupied storage from 100% to 72%, which gives us a little more air to breathe.
