So far... loads slowly... not much there.... offering people to become mods of three forums. You have WAY too many topics.... just start out smaller, then add... very slow... no modifications to make it better either....

Loads slowly=IPB 1.3, its always been slow... well, the sites getting moved onto a Dual Xeon maybe soon hehe, it should speed up.

Too much forums=I can't delete them all now biggrin.gif I spent too much time creating them.

No mods=I am soon installing IBStore, and Arcade maybe.

IPB 1.3 was never this slow, it is this server that is slow. Actually, IPB 1.3 was FASTER than 2.0

you don't need a dual xeon. I could run a fast IPB 1.3 on even a 20 MHz processor. The problem is that they are trying to cram thousands of users on one server. That's what makes it slow. They should only cram up to 50-100 users on this server, but they have more like 8,000. Which is sad.gif even for the supercomputers.

I think 8000 is enough, especially for a Dual Xeon. but they dont pack that much anyways.

I am pretty sure that it will speed up considerably after the server has been changed, regardless of the number of users. Intel Xeon processors are pretty fast, and they are also 64-bit. But when you have two of them running side-by-side, well, you can prepare for true 128-bit computing!

btw, djbob, what kind of speed does each processor have? I have seen them range from 2-gigahertz to more than 3-gigahertz. And I hope you are using an IBM server, IBM has a fine reputation for being innovative and reliable. Their newest server family, the Blue Gene, is the fastest server in the world, with more than 100,000 PowerPC processors.

Nice, that is like a combined speed of 9.6-gigahertz! Even if you have thousands of users using that server, it would probably be pretty fast.

But each processor is 64-bits. So you multiply the speed by two, and you get the actual speed of the processor, and then you multiply it by two again because there are two of them.
