As many you know the server has been lagging for the past ~2 weeks (while I've been on a break). This problem is related to the lag from about 3 months ago, we had the drives replaced and the problem went away. The problem is related to the drives again, but I'm not going to request them be replaced again.
I'm going to completely switch hosts and server hardware. #AMDRyzen
We will not surrender this network to intel's false song of low core counts!
We are currently using 4 machines with quad core cpu's ,but we will be switching to 2 way more powerful machines with AMD octa cores.
The change over will be on Wednesday the 7th of June. I might perform it sooner or later depending on how long I take to setup the new machines.
After my 3 week break it's great to be back :)
Edit: This could take a while so expect the downtime to be upto 6 hours.
Edit: Delayed until Thursday due to network issues which are now resolved.
