Site Load

There is a question of whether the site can handle a Wiki of all the pages. Currently the UESP is serving 120-150k hits, 90-110k files, 30-40k pages totalling 2-3 GB of bandwidth per day. Once Oblivion is released I can easily see this increasing by a factor of 5 (if not more, peak visits during Morrowind were a factor of 3 more than current values). While this only translates to a few pages per second (or so), it still may be much for the virtual server to handle. Caching options can be considered as I'd don't want to have to get a more expensive server contract for the site unless there is no other option.

I don't notice any problems. --Aristeo 19:41, 5 July 2006 (EDT)
Load seems very fine with a lot of room if we need more. Bandwidth use is around 15% of the current maximum. CPU use is similarily 10-20% with average loads of 0.5, The current server settings maximize use of memory meaning we're using 90% of RAM typically but in a controlled manner to prevent exceeding 100% and forcing it to start swapping. Stability is also fine with the server running for months without problems (current restarts have only been due to upgrades and setting changes). -- DaveH 20:06, 12 August 2006 (EDT)
