Message 26 - Posted: 6 Feb 2018, 23:10:43 UTC

In next 2-4 days I would like to make some maintance break for 1 step:
1. moving boinc server from VPS to physical hardware with SSD <- like gg@h nci
2. resize partition <- acctually disc on vps has 230gb and SSD has 500gb
3. create and start using swap partition on new enviroments <- because propably clonezilla won't move swap from VPS to SSD
4. make some tunning for database and apache2 <- I don't won't use php-mpm pool so it should much easier than on gg@h nci

It will take about 4-5 hours, but like I wrote on http://nci.goofyxgridathome.net/forum_thread.php?id=281#2475 just wait for server is back.
After it it will be time to step 2: NFS mounting, automation scripts ect

Will the existing DB be ported or will we need to setup our accounts again?

Making the tasks bigger/longer might help on the db load since there will be fewer requests for tasks. MilkyWay used to have big issues since tasks only lasted like 10 seconds. Jake bundled tasks together and the server instantly became more stable.
