We apologize for the difficulties some of you may have had accessing our board and site recently. 

About ten hours prior to this post, we were in maintenance mode for about 45 minutes in order to move our database to our new server.  (The downtime just a few hours ago was not due to our upgrade, but an issue with the host.)

We are now up and running on our new two-server cluster

Server specs:

New Database server:
Dual Opteron 246 64 Bit Processors
2 Gigabyte PC3200 ECC DDR RAM
SATA RAID 5 w/3 drives
64 Bit Linux Operating Sytem

Web Server:
3.06 Pentium 4
1 Gigabyte of RAM
Linux Operating System

The new server environment should provide a noticeable improvement in both speed and the availability of our search.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding  :D

Cool setup, But wouldn't it be just sufficient to run it on that "Dual Opteron" server alone? I mean it's just that there's no need to pay for 2 servers, when you can pay for one.

From looking at the loads, I think it would be pushing it, especially when you consider mail, cvs, and all the other stuff we have running.   Plus, we're going for scalabilty (add more web server later if need be)

Is the DB server on the same private switch as the webserver (the server that runs apache)?
