View Full Version : Data caching

26 Apr 2007, 18:45
Can someone briefly explain how this works and what is needed to it up.

Do i need a seperate server? More ram? bigger drives? I'm starting to get upwards of 600-800 people online during peak hours, and am trying to find ways to alleviate some server stress short of upgrading to a new server. (Currently on a woodcrest 12GB ram, SCSI 10k disks)

Database is currently on seperate machine where the load is never above 1 so i realize thats probably not the bottle neck.

Attachments are approching about 40GB in total, with 172,580 seperate attachments, so i've got those on a seperate disk. (Would love to find out how to host them on a seperate server)

Most modifications have been removed, short of Arcade, and VBA.

Any help is appreciated.

With these frontend server specs you should be able to handle much more than 600-800 online users. Did you go through the optimization procedure (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=14)?
