Is Free Republic running faster?
Vanity | March 8, 2013 | Me

Posted on 03/08/2013 6:28:46 AM PST by PROCON

I'm on an old work computer that I've used for years so I know it's not on my end, but FR seems to be running faster/smoother....Sweet!

It's NOT your imagination. FR has undergone a big upgrade!

OLD Server: 'Cheetah 01'...

NEW Server: 'Cheetah 02"...

The move from 5 1/4" floppy to hard drive is really making a difference!

This is so great. The site just flies now. Hope all our kudos don’t jinx it.

That IBM PC/XT has an EGA color monitor. Now that is upscale. Nice!

wow... 1 seconds to post and load the thread and display it.

Im pinging +/-100 milliseconds, give the browser a half second to render, so less than a half second server side.

Impressive.

Howdy everyone!

Yup. John brought the new db server on stream this morning about 4:00 am after much stress testing. It’s now our primary db server and the old one is serving as back-up. We immediately noticed a tremendous boost in speed and throughput, but of course there were very few posters online. Was praying it would continue under a load. Thank God, it appears to be. The new eight cpu db server is very powerful and has many gigabytes of ultra fast memory and solid state storage devices, etc. (and that’s just about the limit of my technical vocabulary). But it appears to be working just fine.

You’ve made my day, Jim. Our Internet service has been down for nearly 3 hours and I was ticked. Just got back online and FR is super fast for me.

Woo hoo!!

Now I will have extra time to wait in TSA lines, have my pocketknife blade measured, sit in traffic behind car accidents caused by released criminal illegal aliens, etc. etc. To think that JimRob & John have double-handedly overcome the effects of sequestration! It truly is a miracle!

Android pages rendered noticeably faster on phone and tablet. Perhaps 5x. Now remember, ideally, you should change the oil in the server every 3000 pages to keep it humming. And it goes without saying extended warranty coverage and dealer-applied protective undercoating are essential.
