Site on new hardware

Looks like everything is back up and running. I have noticed that with a moderate amount of users/guests online, the server load being reported seems much smaller than before. If this holds, it means that that the performance improvements are real. It also means I can cut back a bit on size of the VMs I'm using, and still see comparable performance, but there's no rush. Anything "slow" on this site isn't really coming from this site anyway; it's typically the ad pages or pictures hosted elsewhere, where the speed of the ninjette.org webserver/database itself is irrelevant.

NP! Can't take much credit myself, though I'm happy to try. :-) This was a planned upgrade by the ISP, where they rotate out their older hardware with new stuff every few years on a rolling cycle. Many years ago this was much more of a complicated undertaking, with a need for careful backups, and complexities in rebuilding a site or application on new infrastructure.

But with virtual machines (VMs), all of this becomes much easier. All the admin has to do is stop the VM, and there are tools to automatically migrate the VM over to the new hardware (or anywhere else), get it restarted, and everything is exactly as it was before. The only reason there was any real downtime at all this time, is that the networking hardware itself (that the VMs would be running on) changed significantly from the old setup, so he had to get into the individual VMs themselves and reconfigure some interfaces.

Oh, I had envisioned you trapped in a huge rat's nest of wires among racks of servers for several days, just to keep us from missing more than a few seconds of posting.

This is how I imagine it:



I have no idea which picture is closer, as I've never seen it. But I'm optimistic.

Years ago I installed some radio equipment at my ISP and it was very much like the photo I posted.

Somehow I suspect most server rooms look more like the rats-nest than the pretty picture.

Thanks for your work on keeping things running here!

The second picture is day one of the install of a new server, the first picture is one year later and the original installer quitting cause no one else wants to keep having to untie and replace the ties.
