Polling a few of my user via ICQ/AIM results in the same comments, that my workstation Sugarcube is WAAAYYY more responsive than the previous server, Phade. This leads me to believe there is something fundamentally wrong with Phade. Afterall, at nearly 2 Gigahertz, that piece of crap shouldn’t be much slower than the workstation.
Also, with the help of one of my users we found a bug that was causing some tw2002 processes to ramp up to 100%. The difference so far is that Sugarcube can handle the abuse, as where Phade went down for the count. Sounds like a CPU problem to me.
After I verify the problems, I’ll be purchasing some new hardware at the beginning of next month. Chips are cheap.
