very slow since the recent update


I don’t really know if it is the right place to mention that, but since the recent update of, each time I click on a link or refresh the page, it takes a really long time to load, it goes probably from 1 to 10 minutes sometimes. It is not a big deal, but it’s just in case you were not aware.

Cheers !

We’re aware, there is more information here:


Sorry about that. It seems that while we sped up the site earlier, the crawlers hit the site much faster, which in turn caused MySQL to consume ram and put the system into swap.

I tried to tweak a few things in the mean time, to help reduce some of this memory leaking into swap (despite using --memlock in my.cnf), and will be monitoring the system to see how it handles.


Thanks a lot, it seems to be back now, with normal speed :smiley:

No problem! Gonna see about some RAM to throw at the problem. It’s too much of a hassle to test MySQL tweaks without being disruptive, IMHO.
