I wouldn't thank me yet. We're still not in the new rack on the new (used) hardware, and so we still have to see how the search holds up under load.
I optimized a bunch of stuff. We'll see if it helped.
I also caused some problems earlier, which is why I had to shut the forums down briefly. Anyone catch the disappearing threads/posts? Whoops. I think I fixed what I broke.
Anyway, for now, at this off-peak time, everything is looking good (knock on wood). Again, we'll see how it does under load later today.
I have a teleconference in about five hours, so I'm over-and-out for the night, all.
P.S. If the forum performance starts to get crushed under the weight of the search, we may have to turn it off until we make the move, or at least during peak times of the day (until we make the move). Hopefully it'll hold up. I'll ask Neil to take a look at things tomorrow if he has time, to see if there are any optimizations I missed.
