You have no concept of where the bottle neck is. The webserver hosting
the cgi part isn't being loaded hardly at all. The database server is a
pretty beefy box, and again, its not so much a specific hardware
limitation, just more a limitation on the design of bugzilla and its
ties to mysql. We're having to 'fix' the problem by getting a
master/slave mysql db server setup which the OSL didn't have setup at
the time. This is apparently the 'solution' upstream suggests which I
think is daft, but its what we have to do.
Please stop stating solutions to problems you don't fully understand or
think you understand. I'm getting tired of all this fud being said
around about stuff people don't totally understand. Hardware from
sponsors mean nothing if they aren't utilized in a proper manner with
planning and skills. And its not really a big bottle neck of people. You
try finding people who have a ton of free time, have excellent admin
skills, gives everyone on the team a 'good vibe' and seems trustworthy.
Its not as easy as you think it is. I'm in the process of bringing on a
guy I know personally which will help the load of things a lot. Plus, he
works with me, so I can kick him literally if he slacks :). (now if only
recruiters *cough*swift*cough* could work faster ;-) )
Anyways, I'm not going to rant on about this anymore. We're working on
the problem, and you just have to be patient.
