Slow today

Things are crawling today because overnight the crystals IotD got Farked

http://forums.fark.com/cgi/fark/comm...IDLink=2688251

They linked to the forum view, which kills us every time.

Up until that point, stumbleupon was finding it a lot.

In the long run I think it may become necessary to split the forums and the database across two different servers. In the short run I will try to point to less interesting IotDs.

Linked on the front page of fark.com, where we are currently seeing an average of one request per second for the crystals thread. This is crazy!

At least farkers have a really short attention span. Things will be okay tomorrow, or even as soon as later this evening.

It takes a bit more work for the server to generate that list, so I've temporarily disabled it.

I see...good for you! This is painfully slow.

I guess the exposure is a good thing, though, eh?

btw, how does fark.com handle it? multiple copies? answering all requests from a cached copy? What can you do for redirection in such a case? Can you create a "hot seat" spot that's capable of withstanding such a load, even if that space can't accommodate the entire cellar? Like some kind of quarrantine, but not to block access, only to redirect access.... just thinkin out loud..

It seems like things have been slow in general here over the past few days. Of course, it may also be my DSL, but I don't seem to have any problems with other sites.

We've also been getting beaten badly by StumbleUpon - in fact, right now it looks like more traffic from SU than from Fark. But we're also getting traffic from people linking to it because they found it interesting on Fark.

I linked to it too, but I linked to the Snopes webpage so my worlds wouldn't collide.
