Database Server Maintenance

While investigating sluggish behavior on our database server this morning I noticed that a couple of our settings were not properly optimized. As a result we’ll be updating these settings tomorrow to ensure our website is as fast as can be.

The actual process is quite simple, and should have a small amount of downtime. We’ll be doing it sometime between 2AM and 9AM EST. The actual window of downtime shouldn’t be longer than 15 minutes.

I’ll be posting updates on this post. Our server techs will be handling the process to ensure it’s done as quickly as possible. I’ll update here if I get a more specific time frame.

Update: The process went smoothly with only a few minutes of downtime. Hurray!
