    Hmmm, I have noticed that mass alert does not get things looked at as much as I thought it would. We have thousands that log in every day. We are starting to hit 700 registered users logged in at the same time. Numbers that have looked at the threads related to a mass alert, a fraction of the number of people that should have got the alert.

    That was fast, they did it in 15 minutes.

    I think I will wait about an hour to see if things look good then I will start another 24 hours slow server log.

    MySQL will take a bit caches to fill.

    I think the reason there are so many guests might be because some people just stay logged on on their phones and check in every now and again. So maybe they didn't even notice the Forum went down for 15.

    I was thinking of this thread. 3-4 times the number should have seen it and I know some people looked at it multiple times.

    Do the statistics take into account people who may read the alert heading but not read the post? All of the information was in the alert title so no real need to come here.

    Good point. That could be it. The statistic shows the number of times the thread was looked at, not the content of the alert.

    Although I just read your post above mine and that alert had no information just that there would be downtime...

    Things seem pretty zippy now, of course there is not the same number of guests and members logged as usual at this time of day because we were down.

    It will be interesting to see how it is going when we have 700 logged in and 1400 guests looking at the forum. Right now it is only 344 and 440.

    I'm going to be shocked if re-seating the drive fixes anything. Seeing as how the slowness and resets were plaguing the server prior to the migration.

    supposedly, according to the Devs, Xenforo is supposed to be lightweight. (even better than vBulletin) I can only say that I think the problems are either the number of web processes compared to the DB and the allowed connections the DB can take, or the DB wasn't properly configured for InnoDB (which is what XenForo relies on)

    You should have the hosting company look at the DB logs, transaction logs, error logs etc.

    :)

    First of all, this is a vast improvement to the slowness that was the forum even after the downtime.

    Second, the mass alert didnt show for me, but no alerts show up for me when I'm using my android phone and tapatalk. I believe tapatalk for iPhone still delivers the alerts. I have to log in to the web browser to get my alerts which I do a couple times per day.

    I'm Moobile, Baby!!!

    So I guess the hard drive is comfortably settled in to its new seat, hopefully something tastefully modern in brown naugahyde, no wait, the geeks have probably given it a La-z-boy in green tweed. Nice. But it seems ok now anyway. :)
