    I noticed the past few days I have been getting server busy try later errors. I just got it a few times this morning. Is your server getting ready to dump? I hope not. Just wanted to let you know in case you wanted to check it out.

    P.S. It took me almost two hours just to post this.

    We are aware of the load issues on the server, and I started working on a long-term solution to address them. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I found out about an hour ago that half of the server memory (512 MB out of 1024 MB) had crashed (probably Friday, although I'm unsure of exactly when).

    I have reported this to the datacenter and they replaced the broken memory, so things should already be better now.

    Just to keep you updated, I'll move ArboristSite away to another server in the upcoming days to reduce the server load. That should get rid of the server too busy errors and give PlowSite room to grow.

    I have just moved ArboristSite to another server, so there should be no more "server too busy" errors during busy times of the day.

    Load balance with F5's or cluster...........What speed is your NIC?

    There should be no need to do advanced load balancing - simply putting different sites on different servers should do the trick. As for the NIC, it's a standard 10/100, but that's more than enough - it's used at about 5-10% of its capacity.

    The problem really was with the server load, and I think that it should be correct now that ArboristSite is gone.

    I have been unable to access Lawnsite for at least two weeks. Am I the only one? Steve.
