Recommended Posts

Hi Stephen,

 

The downtime on this site was certainly worth it.  It is very zippy!!  Thank you so much for the improvements!   :laugh2:

We moved to a brand hardware server an Intel® Xeon® CPU X3470 @ 2.93GHz

Quad core with hyper threading that presents as 8 cpu's compared to our old one had 2 cpu's. Has the same amount of RAM 8GB but its 50% faster. Disks are about 20% faster on both read and write, they are still spindle drives, but in the next few months we may add a SSD drive and move the SQL database to that drive, to improve performance further.

 

I want to thank every one of our Community Advertisers & Sponsors and Members to making FMForums your favorite FileMaker resource.

Certainly seems a great upgrade - very speedy here too.... unlike community.filemaker.com which is painfully slow here......

One hesitates to ask: is any part of this Filemaker driven?

only the topics of conversation - the site is all php/mysql. - in the past I had used ESS to FMP to publish and pull data, haven't done so in a while.

I was a bit worried when I saw "estimated time of coming back, 3 PM PST," and after 5-6 hours of that time things still being down, that there was a Serious Problem. :)

The changes are really great!

Btw, did you "buy/borrow/steal" the speed from FileMaker Inc after they switched to their new "Community"?

 

It is very miraculous that you, with much less ressources than a large company, are able to come up with such a difference.

 

Great work!
