Danger in tuning

April 10, 2006

Just recovered from a minor heart attack. I didn't realize how closely I'd tuned the grazr server. The new code exhibits a slightly different memory footprint and that difference caused the grazr server to completely die (running out of memory). It was only down about 10 minutes as far as I can tell, but it's definitely pointing me to the fact that I probably need more horsepower than what I'm running now. I've backed off some of the server parameters and it looks like it's ok again, sorry to anyone who got empty grazr boxes for that time.
