I always thought that SMF is consuming very less ressources......

It is, my forum runs happily on the hardware in my sig does about 380,000 SMF powered page views / day with a smile on it's face.

Ben, not sure how you do it, but currently we have one quad core database server with 4 gigs of RAM and one dual core web server with 2 gigs, and the database server sits at 40-40% utilization and the web sever is maxed out a lot of the time, and that's with caching at level 3.   We did just get things running with memcached recently, which I'm real happy about.

I admit it's starting to get a little bit hairy during and after a game, I'll probably look into using something like Mathopd, lighty, tux etc for static content, apache serving 250+ requests causes a few issues. Tux is looking like the best option, although the possibility of security issues with it running in kernel space is a bit scary but hey, if everything is kept upto date there shouldn't be any issues but I think I'll give it a miss.

Memcached looks interesting, although from what I can tell would only be of real benefit if it's being used in a multi server setup so wouldn't really be much use for me?

Memcached will benefit single server configurations as well. It's a cache engine, but can run on distributed setups.

Whats the benefit over say, APC?

Just switched for lighty for most of my static content (still need to go through the main site files to change that) and load has about halfed, which is nice.

Memcached seems more stable on 64-bit systems.

We're actually using it at work for a huge template-driven e-commerce solution we built, and it works wonderfully well.

Any thing special to watch out for/be aware of when setting this up Ben?

Thus far everything seems to be working fine as static.redand.... No doubt as soon as I go away for a period of time, lighty will start segfaulting and my images will disappear.

I still don't get how this gets asked so many times. Simple Machines does not host any of your sites. They just provide the software to do so. You need to contact your host or post in the support board.

Thanks for the help.

I was on the phone with my host.  Can't load the index file but can load others.

Since I am not that technical i thought the forum software that i use could give me a hand.

Sorry if i offended you.
