That is an excellent preformence!
I know that the server i'm hosting on has several forums running on it, with a total of 10.000+ posts a week and about ten times that amount in pageviews. The server load is normally between .2 and .7 which I think can go down.
If you have any comments on how to improve the load on the server side (so without making changes to the forum configuration, like disallowing pictures/gzip etc. etc) and wish to share that comments with the rest of us, please do
Here are some of my server's PHP settings:
(in case you are interested)
zlib.output_compression = Off
sql.safe_mode = Off
mysql.allow_persistent = On
mysql.max_persistent = -1
mysql.max_links = -1
This is the current system load:
11:46am up 87 days, 20:49, 6 users, load average: 0.42, 0.49, 0.51
113 processes: 108 sleeping, 5 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
CPU states: 43.1% user, 3.5% system, 0.0% nice, 53.2% idle
Mem: 512284K av, 486816K used, 25468K free, 16K shrd, 70296K buff
Swap: 522072K av, 41304K used, 480768K free 292492K cached
I don't know how many people are online right now on all the forums currently running but I guess about 25 people or so.
I hope someone can give me some good advice on how to run these forums even better
