Thread: Server overloaded much?

    Server overloaded much?

    I am getting very regular error messages that the server is overloaded (which is good I guess but sometimes they surprise me (for example around 5:44 in the morning with 6k people on EU).

    NB: I actually got the server too busy message while posting this thread!

    vBAddict is processing much data in the Night (CET), this can lead to overloading.

    This is quite much issue for every evening at this hour or so. And worse on weekends.

    I know the "premium service" has been discussed before and it is not optimal solution, but some kind of solution would be good to have. I am pretty sure I am not only one not so willing to donate to service that just is not working when I would use it, but would happily play some small sum every month for service I like. Currently donating is not promising me service I would like to have, nor keeping donating is promising situation would change.

    This is an issue which I cannot resolve with just some donations. The vBAddict infrastructure has improved over the years, but not only positive for all users: A working service is used by more users. More users require better infrastructure. As soon as I install a new server to improve the uploading issue, more users are uploading... You see, the history is repeating.

    We are speaking of 63k Users with over 6 Mio uploads per month.

    I see just one solution to this, and it include a complete rework of the uploading component to a queued one.

    Pro: All data is accepted at first moment and processed in a second step, making it working separate from the server load.
    Contra: No immediate feedback about the uploaded file, and while server is overloaded no statistics

    So it would be similar like now, with one difference: The files would be uploaded without problems, but the analysed data would be available later.

    A premium service would not change that. It would just increase the priority of the uploaded files.

    Maybe changing the uploader so that quick summary would would be build in and other stats woould be available only later after queued upload? After all, Im quite sure that is only one people follow while playing.

    ADU is just a small client. Overblowing it with applications to extract the binary relevant part out of the Battle Results, Dossier and Replay would be against the one-small-file to upload.

    I would stop the whole replaysection. It`s a shitload of data and space. There r some other replay-sites like wotreplays.com. Let them have this part of the data... just a thought...

    Don't underestimate this. There are thousands of users who are using it. The Replay Section is in the Top 10 of used features. Just because you are not using it, does not tell how others are using the site.

    For the moment I disabled Maps/Categories. It's eating too much performance.

    Actually one of my favorite services... Does that mean it won't come back?

    It will come back, that's for sure. Let me find some time for optimizations.
