Did a configuration change on the website and it brought me to something I really need to work on with the limitation of this webserver. Eventually I’m going to have to migrate to a dedicated server or build myself one
This lowly quad core PC is taking a lot of brunt. I did some changes and applied some programs with my cloudflare settings, my inbound connections on MySQL went from around 4-10 to nearly 500. The PC slowed down drastically because they I/O was taking a hammering
This is the perfect time to start building my cluster of PC’s. A bunch of low powered cluster computers acting as a dedicated server for my website will be faster than this PC as the load requests can be split up.
I’ll get some software and load test this PC, then find out the comparison with the new server I build
Watch this space 🙂
