    Question Server to busy?

    Seem to be getting this message quite often now when I attempt to visit Merb. What's up with that?

    The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later.

    Typical Yankee fan in the Merb Sports Section!! Bwwaahh.

    No, I have a feeling maybe the server is weak. ;-)

    It is possible that the server is set to maximum of ### connections (including guests).
    so once, say 1000, people are connected (which can be done easily by counting number of open sockets/ports) then it refuses the connection.

That is a bit dangerous because it opens the door for attacks by multiple intentional connections that can bring the server down, i.e. run out of memory. Nevertheless, my guess, given past examples, the connections are limited to save $ on bandwidth usage.... and yes, the imaginary Fred still reminds me of Peter
    I don't know about the connection between me and Peter N. ?? but I think your analysis is correct. The server is set to choke off traffic if the number of connections is dangerously high. Usually the message only lasts a a few minutes and you can access the site again.

    Still each night around the same time between 9p-11:15pm I continuously get the Server too busy message. Once in a while I'll get through but then a short time later when I refresh the page it happens again. Why is it that Terb can have 600+ people online at one time and I never get that message and Merb has 180 people online when I finally get though the server too busy barrier?

    Doesn't make sense to me. Maybe Fred should increase the allowable number of connections.

    I will have this checked for sure this time. I am sure it will get resolved.

    I too have been having this problem over the last month. It is discouraging to sign to read or post them get bumped off.

    I have also been getting this message way too often. Very frustrating.

    Hopefully admin can fix it soon.

    Thanks in advance!

    Mornings now ???

    I got that message a couple of times this morning and now around 2pm (ET). Instead of getting better, it seems things are getting worse ...
