Server to Busy

Poor Nick, you know he has to be stressing over this.
One of his favorite days of the year.

The issue has been off and on for a couple of weeks. Always difficult to isolate and actually resolve. The Christmas Party is just abusing the servers. We all just need to be understanding or risk arrest for “Server Abuse” Like elder abuse but for servers.

Merry Christmas all.

It is not really abusing the servers. If you browse without searching it runs smooth. There has to be a setting in the vbulletin back end that throttles max connections or active instances of search. I have a forum much smaller than this but with a huge database and I know that I have had to tweak all sorts of settings to keep our server humming along without lag.
