I believe morph's plan is to restrict the site to "Regular" users only, so at least we won't have a bunch of guests running around.

Also, remember that we're on a far superior server this time around. Hopefully it'll hold up better than the old one.

I'm not offended at all. People are going to spend time at places they're comfortable and that's why there are so many options on the internet. We'll get that sorted out one day, I'm sure but it's not a configurable option right now.

1. He's raw.

2. He didn't dominate against far inferior competition.

3. He didn't impress in workouts and he scored very low on the Wonderlic.

4. He never sent me my autographed picture of Christopher Okoye.

Most of those sub forums don't even need to be there...everyone is going to migrate towards the Chiefs one anyways so it'll turn into 5 or 10 regular users using that lounge to discuss everything anyways...people don't want to use sub forums because they don't get any hits.

Anybody know of a free way to easily monitor the server's performance tomorrow? It'd be nice to start actually watching how the server performs rather than just saying "it sucked at this time" or whatever.

Keep an eye out for the Error page stating that the Server is Busy. If you get that the server is sucking. Write down the times that this occurs and I'm Rainman will be able to extrapolate the data into some amazing chart. :)

The server is easy, UNIX has built in tools for that.

Well, that would kind of do it. I was thinking more along the lines of something hosted on an external computer that would take into account server load, database response, bandwidth, etc.

I'll talk with you about what I can use on the server side though.

I will be monitoring tomorrow. IM me (Morphius has my info) if you want live updates. I can also walk you through the process to follow along using TOP and a few other *nix tools.

I case anyone is a geek like me and cares about this stuff, here are a couple graphs I threw together real quick from Thursday (there was a glitch yesterday that made the data useless).

I'm considering this to be a baseline, "normal" day. I'm curious to see how things compare on a "insanely busy" day.
