Exactly. I've reported the problem upstream, so hopefully Mythic will be able to take a look to see if there is an issue somewhere.Andyroo wrote: ↑Thu Sep 12, 2019 9:47 amThat does not surprise me as the board keeps track of the messages you have read vs new postings so the database access is more for logged in accounts than general browsing.
Obviously any replies etc you make add to the index but on average I think many more database updates occur for logged in accounts compared to responses
Haven't seen a "we're busy" at all today. So looks like it's fixed from my point of view.
Thanks Pete, if it's OK with you'll i'll get back to writing the Pi Linux drivers, seems simpler!Pete_Stevens wrote: ↑Fri Sep 13, 2019 10:00 amJust a bit more detail. We had a bug in the module in the intel network driver (Intel 710) that comes with Debian Stretch. We built a replacement using the newer bugfixed sources direct from intel which we've seen from other machines fixes the issue.
The challenge is installing it, you have to drop the network on the server, remove the old module, install the new module and bring the network back up and we're remote from the server. If it goes wrong half way through the box id offline and you can't log in and fix it. Fortunately in Mythic we have serial as well as network on all our servers. We logged in over serial and then ran a script that completed all of these steps as quick as possible. As a result we interrupted network for around a second while the fix went in. Since then we've seen the load graph return to normal and the alerts have stopped.
+1 to that. Lost count the number of times I’ve had to go to site or get local support to push a button or complete a simple job...
