One day down, one to go (hopefully)
So I spent all day juggling server settings and manually tweaking all the knobs I could find to keep the Grazr server running and responsive. Just as I patched one hole in the dike, two more would spring up elsewhere. I'd go to fix those then inevitably the first one would start leaking again... back and forth... back and forth. :) I must be getting old, I remember when 200mb of RAM was a lot.
Traffic has subsided and as far as I can tell the service remained up and responsive. Now all I need is for the server hosting providers to bring the new Grazr server online tomorrow and hopefully I'll have some breathing room (after configuring it of course). <looks warily over at the creaking, groaning dam>
